Liability for costs associated with lease

    (1)     A landlord under a retail premises lease is not able to claim from any person (including the tenant) the landlord's legal or other expenses relating to—

        (a)     the negotiation, preparation or execution of the lease; or

        (b)     obtaining the consent of a mortgagee to the lease; or

        (c)     the landlord's compliance with this Act.

    (2)     However, subsection (1) does not prevent a landlord from claiming the reasonable legal or other expenses incurred by the landlord in connection with an assignment of the lease or a sub-lease, including investigating a proposed assignee or sub-tenant and obtaining any necessary consents to the assignment or sub-lease.
