Tenants without security
The advantage some landlords have when letting commercial premises is that a court order is not always required to obtain possession of the premises. Before granting a business tenancy for commercial premises, landlords can exclude the tenancy from certain provisions of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954 which means the tenant is required to give up possession of the premises when the tenancy expires unless a new lease is granted by the landlord. In such case, when the fixed term comes to an end the tenant does not have the right to remain in possession of the property; if they do, we can proceed with an eviction without the need for a court order.
In the case of a breach of contract or other act or omission which provides grounds for an eviction, the landlord may seek to invoke the right of forfeiture (subject to the terms of the tenancy), this means that without the need for a court order the landlord may terminate the lease upon re-entry. It is always advisable that a enforcement officer is instructed to execute a right of forfeiture. If you require us to check whether you have such right or want to execute this right contact us by phone or e-mail.
