Suppose I'm a landlord in a contract with a tenant, and I may only inspect the premises if it has been three months since the last inspection.
Let's also suppose however that the contract states that the tenant must clean away all mould from the premises, and if mould is found during an inspection, the tenant can be asked to clean it.
Now suppose I arrange an inspection of the premises one month after the last, in breach of the contract.
While I have breached the contract by inspecting the premises a second time in three months, if I have not caused damages to the tenant, could there be any legal repercussions?
Suppose in the second inspection I find mould in the premises and issue the tenant a breach of contract form (for not cleaning the mould). Could the tenant claim the costs of cleaning the mould as "damages" for my breach of contract under the "but for" test?
