364. Statutory provisions as to improvements.

In all leases, whether made before, on or after 1 January 1926, containing a covenant, condition or agreement against the making of improvements without licence or consent, such covenant, condition or agreement is deemed, by the Landlord and Tenant Act 1927, notwithstanding any express provision to the contrary, to be subject to a proviso that such licence or consent is not to be unreasonably withheld1. Where the covenant prohibits the making of alterations or additions without consent, it is deemed to be subject to the same proviso, if the proposed alterations or additions do in fact constitute an improvement2.
