Restrictions can be imposed by landlords on how tenants use real estate, since a lease sets out the tenant’s covenants. Some covenants require a tenant to obtain the landlord’s consent before carrying out certain activities. An example would be alterations to the premises and assignment or subletting.
The LA also contains activities for which the tenant will require consent of the landlord. These include transferring or assigning the lease, subletting, parting with possession of the leased premises, change of use, improvement of the premises and charging.
