As a landlord you're able to instruct Enforcement Agents to forfeit a commercial lease should your tenant be in breach of covenant.

The most common breach of covenant is the tenant failing to make the necessary payments as stated within the contract between you. Other examples include the tenant conducting unauthorised actions as stated in your covenant, such as subletting without permission.

Forfeiture of commercial lease allows a landlord to repossess their commercial property under Common Law. By instructing DCBL’s specialist team you can avoid lengthy court proceedings: our experts offer a quick and efficient alternative.

What We Do

Upon receipt of your instruction, we will schedule our attendance to peaceably re-enter your property within 24 hours, and often on the same day. The agents will gain access via a locksmith (outside of business/trading hours), create an inventory of goods within, take photographs and utility meter readings before displaying possession notices and securing the property.

We will then send out a Torts (Interference With Goods Act 1977) Notice to the tenant’s last known home address, confirming our actions and advising them that they have an obligation to collect the goods within the property. Failing this, the landlord has the right to dispose of them as they see fit.
