(f)any right, other than a right of pre-emption, enabling a lease to be terminated earlier than the date on which the lease would otherwise expire, providing that such right—

(i)is exercisable no later than the end of the period of 200 years beginning with the appointed day,

(ii)is not a provision of the lease purporting to terminate the lease, or entitling the landlord to terminate it, in the event of a failure of the tenant to comply with any provision of the lease,

(iii)is not a provision of the lease deeming such a failure to be a material breach of contract, and

    (b)

    the consideration (including rent) paid for, or payable under, the lease was—

    (i)
