Commercial Lease Forfeiture

Regain control without risk

Commercial Lease Forfeiture

From time to time, private landlords may wish to evict a tenant, terminate the lease or regain access to the rental property. If you’ve found yourself in this situation, you’ve come to the right team.

Commercial lease forfeiture gives landlords that exact opportunity – but only if and when a tenant has breached their lease (such as not paying rent).

However, without the right expertise and specific advice, landlords put themselves at risk.

Once you have established the right to forfeit the commercial lease contact us and we can take you through the next steps.

How can we help?

As well as giving you confidential expert advice, we can support with:

– Reviewing your tenant contract and lease
– Advising you on the next steps
– Preparing and serving the section 146 notice
– Peaceable re-entry of the property and securing it
– Surrendering of the lease
– Protecting the landlord and tenant relationship
– Ensuring that you are acting lawfully at all times

FAQ

What are enforcement agents?

Enforcement agents or a certificated enforcement agent is someone who has rights under the Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement Act 2007 in England and Wales to take control of a property, money or goods. They are also known as certificated bailiffs.

What is the typical approach?

Once you’ve been in touch and we’ve discussed your situation, we’ll send out a Notice of Enforcement. This is a written notice to either the tenant, squatter or trespasser detailing the offence, notice period and action needed. If nothing has been resolved during the specific period, then we’ll attend to the site to start the next stage.

What time will the enforcement agents attend site?

We work 7 days a week and can attend commercial premises seven days a week, during hours the business is trading.

Will you carry ID?

Yes. All our agents carry the appropriate ID and paperwork. They will show this before entering.

Do you work with the police?

Situations can get fraught. That’s why we often work with the police to diffuse environments and to prevent a breach of peace. We’ve built up a fantastic working relationship with local authorities all around the UK.

I’ve received a letter of notice. What does this mean?

If you’ve recently received a letter from us, then we’ve been instructed to collect a debt which is owed by you. Whether or not you agree, you must contact us to prevent the case from escalating.

When it comes to collecting a debt, what options are there?

We work with everyone’s best interests at heart. If you’re a private landlord, we’ll seek to obtain the full payment or regain control of the property. This can be done by changing the locks or establishing a payment plan.

What if your agent is refused entry or can’t get in?

We will make a number of in person visits at different times and days. If we still cannot gain access we can esculate the matter and seek an order from the court to obtain entry.
