Case study

This Q&A has considered a long lease of high street shops in which there are no specific covenants about how scaffolding should be managed and where the landlord erects scaffolding on the premises on short notice to carry out essential repairs and then leaves the scaffolding in place for several months with no sign of it being removed, causing the shop to lose trade and takes into consideration the following:

  1. is there a limit as to the amount of time scaffolding can be put up?

  2. is there ability of the tenant to claim compensation for the scaffolding being put up for so long?

  3. if the lease was granted six months ago, is there an argument for rescission of the lease on
