Councils using ‘Intelligence’ to track down low EPC properties and fine £5,00015:08 PM, 29th March 2021

I purchased a new purpose built flat 6 years ago. The lease states that the floors should be covered with wall to wall carpet or such alternative means of floor covering as approved by the manager whose approval should not be unreasonably withheld or delayed.
At the point of purchase the developers showroom was full of laminate examples and it was more or less a case of which laminate do you want rather than do you want laminate at all.
The freehold and management has now been transferred to new companies and while they have not yet accused me of breaching the lease this may happen as the owner of the flat below mine is complaining in a big way about impact noise from my tenants.
In the circumstances can I assume I had consent to have the laminate installed and that the consent is irrevocable as the developer was obviously aware of it as they sold it to me as they did to almost all the other leaseholders in the building?
