    Facts :
    Veena, an old lady of 78 years, used to live with her granddaughter Indira. Veena was ill and therefore bedridden for several months. In those months, she could not tolerate any noise and it became quite difficult to clean her room. After she died, Indira hired a cleaner, Lucky, to clean the room and throw away any rubbish that may be there.There was a pile of old newspapers which Veena had stacked in a corner of her room. Lucky asked Indira if he should clear away the pile of old newspapers, to which she said yes, Lucky took the pile to a municipality rubbish dump. While Lucky was sorting and throwing away the newspapers, he was very surprised to find a beautiful painting in between two sheets of paper. He thought that Indira probably wouldnt want this old painting back, especially because it was torn in several places and the colour was fading. He took the painting home, mounted it on a wooden frame and hung it on the wall of his bedroom. Unknown to him, the painting was an old masterpiece, and worth twenty thousand rupees. Before mounting the painting, Lucky pasted it on a plain sheet of paper so that it does not tear any more. By doing so, he made its professional restoration very difficult and thereby reduced its value by half.
    Luckys neighbour Kamala discovered that the painting belonged to Indira. With the motive of returning the painting to Indira, Kamala climbed through an open window into Luckys room when he was away one afternoon and removed the painting from his house.

    C : No, Lucky is not guilty of criminal damage as he does not have the painting in his possession anymore.
    D : No, Lucky is not guilty of criminal damage as he has not destroyed the painting.


  •  
    .

     Correct answer is : A




  •   Question 59

  • For questions 192-195
    Rules:
    A. When land is sold, all fixtures on the land are also deemed to have been sold.
    B. If a moveable thing is attached to the land or any building on the land, then it becomes a fixture.
    Facts:
    Khaleeda wants to sell a plot of land she owns in Beghmara, Meghalaya and the sale value decided for the plot includes the fully-furnished palatial six-bedroom house that she has built on it five years ago. She sells it to Gurpreet for sixty lakh rupees. After completing the sale, she removes the expensive Iranian carpet which used to cover the entire wooden floor of one of the bedrooms. The room had very little light and Khaleeda used this light-coloured radiant carpet to negate some of the darkness in the room. Gurpreet, after moving in, realizes this and files a case to recover the carpet from Khaleeda.


      Question 62

    As a judge you would decide in favour of

    A : Gurpreet because when the price was agreed upon, Khaleeda did not inform her about removing the carpet.
    B : Gurpreet because the carpet was integral to the floor of the bedroom and therefore attached to the building that was sold.
    C : Khaleeda because a fully-furnished house does not entail the buyer to everything in the house.
    D : Khaleeda because by virtue of being a carpet it was never permanently fixed to the floor of the building.


  •  
    .

     Correct answer is : B


  • Assume that in the above fact scenario, Khaleeda no longer wants the carpet. She removes the elaborately carved door to the house after the sale has been concluded and claims that Gurpreet has no claim to the door. The door in question was part of Khaleedas ancestral home in Nagercoil, Tamil Nadu for more than 150 years before she had it fitted as the entrance to her Baghmara house.

      Question 63

    As a judge you would decide in favour of:

    A : Khaleeda because while the rest of the building belongs to Khaleeda exclusively, the door is ancestral property and therefore the decision to sell it cannot be Khaleedas alone.
    B : Gurpreet because the door is an integral part of the building as it is attached to it.
    C : Khaleeda because the door can be removed from the building and is therefore not attached to it.
    D : Gurpreet because the contract is explicitly for the whole house and since the door is part of house, it cannot be removed subsequent to the sale.


  •  
    .

     Correct answer is : B




  •   Question 64

    Amongst the following options, the most relevant consideration while deciding a case on the basis of the above two principles would be:

    A : Whether the moveable thing was included in the sale agreement.
    B : Whether the moveable thing was merely placed on the land or building.
    C : Whether the moveable thing had become an inseparable part of the land or building.
    D : Whether the moveable thing could be removed.


  •  
    .

     Correct answer is : B




  •   Question 65

    Rule C: If a moveable thing is placed on land with the intention that it should become an integral part of the land or any structure on the land it becomes a fixture. Applying Rules A and C, to the fact situations in questions 192 and 193, as a judge you would decide in favour of:

    A : Khaleeda in both situations
    B : Gurpreet only in 192
    C : Khaleeda only in 193
    D : Gurpreet in both situations.

  • For questions 196-200
    Rule A: An owner of land has the right to use the land in any manner he or she desires. The owner of land also owns the space above and the depths below it.
    Rule B: Rights above the land extend only to the point they are essential to any use or enjoyment of land.
    Rule C: An owner cannot claim infringement of her property right if the space above his or her land is put to reasonable use by someone else at a height at which the owner would have no reasonable use of it and it does not affect the reasonable employment of his or her land.
    Rameshs case: Ramesh owns an acre of land on the outskirts of Sullurpeta, Andhra Pradesh. The Government of India launches its satellites into space frequently from Sriharikota, near Sullurpeta. The Government of India does not deny that once the satellite launch has traveled the distance of almost 7000 kilometres it passes over Rameshs property. Ramesh files a case claiming that the Government of India has violated his property rights by routing its satellite over his property, albeit 7000 kilometers directly above it.


      Question 66

    Applying only Rule A to Rameshs case, as a judge you would decide:

    A : In favour of the Government of India because the transgression was at a height at which Ramesh could not possibly have any use for.
    B : That ownership of land does not mean that the owners right extends infinitely into space above the land.
    C : In favour of Ramesh because he has the right to infinite space above the land he owns.
    D : In favour of the Government of India because it would lead to the absurd result that Ramesh and most other property owners would have a claim against airline companies and other countries of the world
