(3)The court may refuse the request if it is made after the hearing of the claim begins.

(4)The request may not be granted if it is made after the court has determined the claim.

(5)If a lessor has been so joined or sisted as a party to the proceedings, the court may determine—

(a)whether the lessor has—

(i)refused consent to the alteration, or

(ii)consented subject to one or more conditions, and

(b)if so, whether the refusal or any of the conditions was unreasonable.

(6)If, under sub-paragraph (5), the court determines that the refusal or any of the conditions was unreasonable it may take one or more of the following steps—
