Relief from forfeiture

A landlord may exercise its right to forfeiture and exclude the tenant from a commercial premises.

Even if it has acted entirely within the law the tenant has the right to apply for relief from forfeiture within 6 months of the date of forfeiture. The court may grant that relief on the condition that the arrears is paid and the landlord’s costs are paid.

Landlords must therefore exercise caution when granting a new lease following forfeiture.
