Section 18 is a reference to Section 18 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1927. The Act is split into two parts or ‘limbs’. The first limb S 18(1) provides that the damages recoverable for breach of the repairing covenant, may not exceed the diminution in value of the landlord’s reversionary interest. The second limb S 18 (2) that a landlord may not recover damages where it intends to demolish or carry out structural works to the property that render the tenants repairs valueless.
