The Landlord’s Covenants is a section on your lease which focuses on the responsibilities and obligations of a Landlord under a Leasing arrangement. Under most of our forms of the lease the landlord must ensure:
1. How do you prevent a breach in Quiet enjoyment?
With respect to quiet enjoyment, ensure that the Tenant is able to function without disturbance on the premises. If the Landlord is aware of any third party activity which may affect the tenant, then it is under an obligation to notify the Tenant of same and take the necessary steps to minimize as much as possible.
2. How do you prevent a breach in Services?
With respect to the performance of the services, the Landlord must ensure that whatever service it has undertaken to perform is done in accordance with the lease.
3. How do you prevent a breach in Confidentiality of Economic Data?
Confidentiality – the landlord must ensure that any economic data which it acquires must be kept, stored and disposed of in the most confidential manner to prevent a breach of this clause.
Note: If the Landlord is unable to perform these obligations and/or there is a breach of same, then the Tenant is entitled to sue for damages and/or forfeit the lease in more severe cases.
