Hi, could you please just clarify that the clause says "thereof for which he is NOT responsible"? Kind Regards Al
Hi, that makes a lot more sense! What the clause means is that the Freeholder shall not be responsible for any covenants other than the Freeholders covenants as stated in the original Lease (these would normally be that the Freeholder insures the block/maintains the block). You are therefore right in that the wording means he is not responsible for the other covenants for which each Tenant is responsible for complying with. This covenant is therefore reasonable, and the Tenant in question shouldn't really have too much to moa about- there would also normally be a Freeholders covenant that he will grant quiet possession of the property to the Tenant, so if there is a noisy neighbour, the Tenant could legally ask you to enforce this covenant if another Tenant is playing up. I hope this answers your question and sets out the legal position. Kind Regards Al
