Cutting Walls Without Landlord’s Consent

23rd February case – Raja v Aviram [2016] UKUT 102 (LC) – this case concerned a covenant against cutting a wall without landlord’s consent. However, holes were cut by a contractor to enable a new boiler to be installed. The Tribunal looked at the relevance of the tenant’s knowledge and the relevance of the landlord’s failure to provide a contact address and section 168(4), Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002.
