submissions in respect of each others statement of reasons and valuation

If any Enactment restricts the right to review rent or to recover an increase in rent otherwise payable then when the restriction is released the Landlord may at any time within six months after the date of release give to the Tenant not less than one months notice requiring an additional rent review as at the next following quarter day which shall for the purposes of this Lease be a Review Date
Time shall not be of the essence for the purposes of this Schedule.
