As a commercial premise property owner in Doncaster there are a lot of reasons for the need to repossess your property, the common one being when your tenant breaches their tenancy terms; such as failure to pay rent, not keeping the premise in Doncaster in good condition by repairing them, being annoying to fellow tenants or assigning or subletting the premise without your permission.
You can take back the possession of the property in Doncaster from the tenant while it is occupied, this kind of Clause is called forfeiture.
Nevertheless, you can only lose the rent if there is a sentence in the rent allowing you to do so.
It's recommended that all leases of commercial property in South Yorkshire include a forfeit clause because without one, your powers as the landlord are extremely limited.
Where you have the right to forfeit in Doncaster, this can be done in one of two methods:
This refers to the case where you move into the building in Goole, Doncaster, or Adwick Le Street and have the locks replaced.
This is a risky option and your tenant may feel unfairly treated and apply for relief from forfeiture from the South Yorkshire court, which means the tenant repossess your property in Doncaster aside from claiming compensation for whatever losses they incurred during the wrongful and forceful eviction.
This technique is regarded the best and most effective in Doncaster albeit it expensive and requires more time to complete court hearings, you are advised to opt for this technique as your last chance.
Your choice depends upon the reason for eviction.
You are not required to give notice of your plan to forfeit in the case of non-payment of rent in Doncaster; you may easily re-enter the premises.
You must not do anything that can cause the tenancy agreement to continue in Doncaster which means your chances of forfeiture are reduced or completely vanished like you must not remind your tenant about any pending rent or wait for next payment to be missed.
You can simply leave a notice of repossession on the door of the property in Doncaster, Adwick Le Street, or Goole and don't forget to bring a witness with you, a solicitor or a locksmith.
If there are other breaches aside from the ones listed above, serve a Section 146 notice first before repossessing the Doncaster property.
The notification must be offered by your lawyer on all interested parties in South Yorkshire, comprising the occupant, any mortgagee and any subtenant.
It must indicate the essence of the violation in Doncaster and whether it needs rectifying effort within a sensible time or the payment of reimbursement.
If the compensation is not done or any violations not resolved, then you can exercise the forfeit.
Notices for repair condition breaches have some additional rules in Doncaster.
In certain instances, you may be forced to give your occupants in Goole, Doncaster, or Adwick Le Street the opportunity to file for statutory security.
This protection needs to be sought by the Doncaster tenant within the stipulated 28 days of receiving the Section 146 notice, it is mandatory that the landlord make a preliminary claim for permission from the court in South Yorkshire before making any further moves.
However, if the landlord enshrined a clause in the lease that entitles the landlord to rectify any defect of repair and claim the cost from the tenant by going into the Doncaster premises, the claim can be avoided.
Forfeiture only starts in the county court in South Yorkshire where the application is made.
He would then fill and submit the necessary forms in Doncaster, potentially online depending on the court location.
After that, the tenant in Doncaster would receive the claim forms, through a solicitor within a specific time bracket.
However, this process is lengthy and can be very costly for the landlord, so you should always consult legal advice as this is a complex part of law and errors will slow the process in Goole, Doncaster, or Adwick Le Street.
The tenant can try to get relief from forfeiture by applying to the South Yorkshire court if certain conditions are met.
A tenants is not entitled straight away, the permission to live will be granted by the court and the tenant will then live in the premises in Doncaster under the same lease contract.
After receiving a section 146 notice an application must be filed by the Doncaster tenant as soon as possible otherwise they will be convicted to a penalty for unnecessary delay.
