In Chapters 5 and 6 the extent to which covenants relating to the condition and maintenance of the premises will be implied (by statute or case law) on behalf of both the landlord and the tenant was considered. An implied provision may be varied by an express one, except in so far as some of the statutory obligations of a landlord cannot be contracted out of, and any covenant which purports to do this will be void. For example, s.11(1) Landlord & Tenant Act 1985 may be excluded or modified only by an order of the court, but not by agreement between the parties.
