    Im not asking for an essay on this just a base to go off. Need a bit of help to understand the below question. Hope someone is kind enough to help me along the way




    Jeffrey Marten is the owner of 29 Georgia Road, Georgetown. A copy of his title follows this question.
    Jeffrey purchased the house in 2002. Three years later he married Alice, who moved into the property in 2005 and over the course of the next few years invested large amounts of her savings in renovating the property and converting the top floor into an apartment which the couple could rent out.
    In 2010 Peter Taylor signed a lease agreement with Jeffrey, allowing him occupation of the top floor flat for five years. Peter travels a lot for business and so spends several months of the year away from home.
    Jeffrey has recently found himself in financial difficulties and his marriage is coming under increasing strain. He has been thinking about selling up and moving away for some time and two weeks ago, whilst his wife was away visiting her elderly mother and Peter was on a business trip in America, he found a buyer, David Matthews, who was prepared to offer cash for a quick purchase.
    If the sale goes through will Mr Matthews be bound by any interest that Alice or Peter have in the property?
    Please explain your answer with reference to appropriate legal principles and authorities.
