A commercial property landlord had a tenant who had not paid rent. Unfortunately and somewhat unusually, a formal commercial property lease had never been completed.
How we helped
Due to the lack of a lease and a specific ‘express forfeiture’ clause, the commercial property landlord was unable to simply retake possession of the property. However, we were able to obtain a possession order via the County Court.
We recovered possession of the commercial property for the landlord and were able to advise on the options for recovering the rent arrears.
