No Demand - What Constitutes Waiver

C\ 1. In 1993 Singer applied for declarations against their Landlord, Montego Bay

Cooperative Credit Union Ltd. (Co-op), that a lease for a duration of ten years

existed between the parties. Singer also sought an injunction restraining the Co-op

from taking any steps to forcibly eject them from premises at Sam Sharpe Square,

Montego Bay. The applications were refused in the Supreme Court, however,

Singer was successful on appeal. An attempt by Co-op to appeal to the Privy

Council was rescinded on 9" October 2000 for failure to prosecute the appeal.
