If a question arises whether the withholding by a landlord1 of his required consent to a tenant's improvements2 was unreasonable, it is for the landlord to show that it was not3. In determining that question, the court must in particular have regard to the extent to which the improvement4 would be likely5:
(1) to make the dwelling house6, or any other premises, less safe for occupiers7;
(2) to cause the landlord to incur expenditure which it would be unlikely to incur if the improvement were not made8; or
(3) to reduce the price which the dwelling house would fetch
