Peaceful Repossession – Forfeiture of Lease for Commercial Properties
Most modern commercial property leases give the landlord the right to terminate the lease when the tenant has breached their obligations. We are happy to help if you need any information to clarify the status of any lease in question.
There are two commercial property enforcement options available in regard to forfeiture of lease. One option can be achieved without having to go to the court, as it is based in common law, while the other option is obtaining an Order of Possession in the County Court. If already in hand these can be transferred up to the High Court.
