    Using License for Alterations while being held in breach

    Hi, we have an existing License for Alterations (which was provided to a previous Lessee) on our flat. The language in the License expressly provides for successors to inherit it saying: "This License for Alterations is made between......(landlords details)...."and".....(tenant's details)..."hereinafter called the Tenant, which expression where the context so admits shall include its successors in title under the said Lease".

    Q1: Do we lawfully own this License as successors in title under the Lease? The above language implies that this is so but the License was prepared around 5 years ago by a different Lessee.

    Q2: We have been held in breach under a completely different matter which we have remedied. The Directors of the FH company however are taking their sweet time to recognize and lift the breach. Can they use the breach as an excuse to stop us from using the License to go ahead with our works?

    Q3: Since structural works are involved, the landlord has asked for a surveyor to inspect the flat. Can this be a surveyor recommended by our architect or does it have to be a surveyor that they choose?
