Timothy Taylor Ltd v Mayfair House Corporation and another

Landlord and tenant – Repair. The Chancery Division allowed the claim of the tenant art gallery concerning works carried out by the defendant landlord on the building where the gallery was situated. The court held that, among other things, the landlord had not acted reasonably in exercising its right to build combined with its scaffolding rights under the terms of the lease and had thereby been in breach of the covenant for quiet enjoyment. In the circumstances, the tenant was entitled to damages.
