It is always preferable for leases to contain express reservations to alter, build and erect scaffolding in favour of a landlord who might want to develop at some point in the future.
A recent case has confirmed that a landlord may choose any reasonable option in relation to carrying out work needed on a property. A landlord may then recover those costs through the service charge.
