If you are the landlord of a commercial property in Barnsley, there are countless reasons why you would want to regain the possession of your property, the most common reason is when a tenant violates their rental agreement, such as inadequate maintenance of the Barnsley property, constituting a nuisance to other properties around, subleasing the property without your permission, or even owing rents.
Repossessing your property in Barnsley that is occupied by a tenant is known as 'forfeiture'.
Nevertheless, you can only lose the rent if there is a sentence in the rent allowing you to do so.
Without such a clause in the lease, then the landlord is prohibited by the law against evicting the commercial tenant in South Yorkshire under no circumstance whatsoever.

However, this may be a risky procedure as the tenant can claim in the court in South Yorkshire for the wrongful eviction under a 'relief from forfeiture' and if this is successful, the tenant gets possession back and can put in a settlement for losses due to unfair eviction from the premises in Barnsley.
This is the most favourable way in Barnsley, even though the proceedings take undue time and are costly, but this route is advised as the last resort.
Your choice depends upon the reason for eviction.

These circumstances can be avoided if there is a relevant clause in the lease which enables the owner of the premises in Barnsley to repossess and claim any costs of damages and costs incurred from debt.
