The Landlord's right to enter, inspect and repair the property

In almost all commercial leases there is a clause known as Jervis v Harris clause which gives the landlord the right to enter and inspect the property and where the tenant is in breach to carry out repairs. This clause enables the landlord to recover its costs from the tenants as a debt, rather than damages. This is important because section 18 Landlord and Tenant Act 1927 (LTA 1927) restricts the amount a landlord can recover in damages for disrepair but this does not apply to costs incurred under a Jervis v Harris clause.
