Access for Fit Out
How do you interpret tenant access for fit out? Our interpretation is that the landlord is extending the tenant access prior to the commencement date for fit out, and that it is not the tenant taking full control of the property.
We have a tenant with access for fit out starting tomorrow for two weeks who wants to block the landlord from access for BWOF and remove chattels that are not required for the tenancy etc without arranging it through him. (note the tenant fit out is only a bit of paint and temp walls)
Thoughts greatly appreciated!!
why does he want to block access for BWoF (and removal of chattells not part of tenancy seems reasonable)

We are the emergency key holders to the property, so it's not going to happen.
The lease doesn't start for another two weeks, so until then the landlord should still be able to access the building also, to do necessary works.
as he is responsible for the tenancy prior to commencement perhaps his concern is reasonable.
Have you tried asking what the issues are?
Not a good start to a tenancy.
Always the best solution, to work things through amicably. A complicated tenant fitout that has to be integrated with a landlord finishing off work in an overall development is like herding cats and parties need to be flexible, as well as have someone in control of the co-ordination.
Access for fitout isn't the same as occupation as a lessee; no way no how should a tenant be getting all the keys and complete control.
I don't get this Giddy.
Are you the tenant, the landlord or a property manager?
I don't see how a tenant can ever tell a landlord not to come on the property.
They have quiet enjoyment rights, but the landlord has rights to do repairs, do the BWOF stuff etc.
Not to mention the simple right to inspect the property from time to time.
