Provisions as to consent of mesne landlord to acts of competent landlord

3.—(1) If the competent landlord, not being the immediate landlord, serves any such notice or makes any such agreement as is mentioned in paragraph 2(1) without the consent of every mesne landlord, any mesne landlord whose consent has not been given thereto shall be entitled to compensation from the competent landlord for any loss arising in consequence of the service of the notice or the making of the agreement.

(2) If the competent landlord applies to any mesne landlord for his consent to such a notice or agreement, that consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed, but may be given subject to any conditions which may be reasonable (including conditions as to the modification of the proposed notice or agreement or as to the payment of compensation by the competent landlord).

(3) Any dispute as to the amount of compensation payable under this paragraph and any question arising under this paragraph as to whether consent has been unreasonably withheld or delayed or as to whether any conditions imposed on the giving of consent are unreasonable shall be referred to and determined by the Lands Tribunal.

(4) Where the Lands Tribunal determines the amount of compensation payable under this paragraph, it shall order the payment of the sum thereof.
