Any formal written lease will contain a number of covenants by the tenant and probably some covenants by the landlord. As we have seen in Chapters 5 and 6, there are certain covenants implied by either case law or statute, and in the case of some of the repairing covenants implied by statute on behalf of the landlord, it is expressly enacted that these cannot be modified or abrogated by the terms of the lease. In so far as any express covenant in a lease purports to do this, it will be ineffective.
