Claiming Possession of your Commercial Property

Taking back possession and control of your commercial property when it is still occupied by the tenant is called forfeiture.

You can only forfeit the lease of there is a specific clause in the lease/contract (as noted above) that enables you to do so. It is advisable that for all commercial agreements and leases that you should obtain this type of clause. If you do not, this will limit your power as a commercial landlord significantly and leave you severely restricted with your rights.

Your right to forfeit can be exercised in one of two ways:

  • Applying to court for possession - This is usually the preferred route and Debt Squared can help you with any court proceedings should you wish to go down this route.
  • Peaceable Re-entry - This involved the locks being changed on the premises. Debt Squared offer a range of services for Forfeiture of Lease which can be viewed here.
