    However, where a rent review clause is associated with a true option (a "break" clause, for example), it is a strong indication that time is intended to be of the essence of the rent review clause—if not absolutely, at least to the extent that the tenant will reasonably expect to know what new rent he will have to pay before the time comes for him to elect whether to terminate or renew the tenancy (cf. Samuel Properties Ltd. v. Hayek [1972] 1 W.L.R. 1296).
