Landlords may be keen to regain early possession of a valuable property in the event of tenant rent arrears.  However, it’s vital for advisors to understand the precise provisions of the lease and the conditions under which forfeiture is possible.  Getting it wrong and forfeiting the lease when the right to forfeit has not actually arisen can prove very costly for the landlord.

This seminar will cover:
  • Has the right to forfeit arisen?
  • Under what conditions can relief from forfeiture be granted?
  • Lessons from case law
  • The risks of waiving the right to forfeit
  • Practical considerations around re-entry, tenant belongings
  • Dilapidations
  • Issuing court proceedings

The published time is when registration opens. The seminar will begin 30 minutes later.
