Messenex Property Ltd v Lanark Square Ltd  EWHC 89 (Ch)
Nat Duckworth acts for the successful landlord in Messenex Property Ltd v Lanark Square Ltd  EWHC 89 (Ch) resisting a tenant’s claim for a declaration that consent to alterations to a block of flats had been unreasonably refused. The case considers, amongst other things, whether, once an application for consent is made, the scope of the works to which the application relates is fixed or ambulatory in character and whether a landlord can reasonably object to the works on grounds that relate to the method of implementation of the works, rather than the end result. The judgment of Ashley Greenbank, sitting as a judge of the High Court, is here.
