AG Securities v Vaughan (1988) was a legal case in English property law concerning the concept of exclusive possession.


Four individuals each held a written agreement for the occupancy of a furnished flat. Each agreement stated that the individual was to share with up to three other people and that only a licence (rather than a lease) was being granted. Several agreements were made, with each agreement lasting no more than six months. When a vacancy arose the landlord would decide who was to replace the person who had left.

House of lords

The House of lords ruled that no exclusive possession existed.
