legalese

Here is a sentence from a residential rental agreement:
"The Tenant shall not make SUCH alterations or additions OF ANY NATURE whatsoever to the Leased Premises without the Landlord’s prior written consent and shall not have any claim against the Landlord for improvements effected to the Premises".

Is it possible, solely on the basis of this excerpt, to say:
1) whether "SUCH" applies to "alterations or additions" or only to "alterations";
2) whether "OF ANY NATURE" applies to "alterations or additions" or only to "additions"?

Thanks a lot!
