FAO Tom only
Thanks Tom. I appreciate that a Licence has less security than a Lease. We plan to build a conservatory (and before a change of freeholder had plans virtually approved) and given the expenditure (£20K+/-) and the "positive" wording of 3.3 (The landlord will not revoke this Licence without just cause ......) my view is that this particular wording (will not without just cause) would create a high hurdle of offence/breach before they could revoke. Or am I wrong?
Tom, I forgot to point out that any Conservatory requires the Freeholders approval. Given approval to build, and bearing in mind the order of wording in 3.3 (will not without just cause.....) are we to any extent protected from an arbitrary decision to terminate the licence?
