Your tenant is probably not paying rent on time, disturbing other tenants, tempering with the Gloucester premise or in breach of other lease terms like subletting your premises without your knowledge, these are some of the reasons a landlord may want to evict their commercial tenants and regain possession of their property in Gloucester.
Forfeiture is the process of taking back ownership of your premises in Gloucester when held by a tenant.
However, the forfeiture option for a lease can only be effected if a clause in the lease enables you to that.
For all commercial leases in Gloucestershire it is advisable to contain a clause as such as without it, your will have restricted powers as a property owner.
You can carry out the activity in Gloucester using either of the options:
In this scenario, you replace all the locks at the property in Abbeydale, Coney Hill, or Barnwood.
To be more risky it is considered as your tenants could choose to go to court in Gloucestershire for 'relief forfeiture', and where the tenant claims compensation for incurred losses and repossesses as a result from eviction in Gloucester that is wrongful.
This is the preferred method in Gloucester as this follows correct court procedures, although it can be more lengthy and costly and this should be the last resort.
Your reasons for regaining possession could have a role in deciding the route taken by you.
Since the property can be re-entered by you in this scenario, there is no need to release any forfeit notice for delays in rent payment in Gloucester.
You'd be causing damage to your right to forfeit if you considered sending a reminder to the tenant of any overdue rent in Gloucester, after that you won't be able to forfeit unless the next rent payment is missed.
The repossession notice should be posted on the main entrance door of the rented property in Abbeydale, Coney Hill, or Barnwood and for this a witness should be brought along like a locksmith or solicitor.
Before repossession of a property in Gloucester, landlords must first serve the tenant a Notice Section 146 prior to taking the premises' possession.
The notice on all interested parties, including the tenant, any mortgagee, and any subtenant in Gloucestershire must be served by your solicitor.
The status of the violation in Gloucester needs to be clearly stated in the notice along with any compensation payment or corrective action required within a particular time period.
You can proceed to forfeit the lease if the breach has not be remedied or compensation not paid.
The notices in Gloucester relating to breaches of repair come with additional rules.
In certain situations, you may be required to provide the tenant in Abbeydale, Coney Hill, or Barnwood the chance to claim statutory protection.
This must be claimed by the Gloucester tenant not more than 28 days after getting a section 146 notice and the landlord is required to apply for a preliminary claim for permission from the court in Gloucestershire before doing anything else.
This can be prevented if the rent includes a sentence which authorises the owner to enter the Gloucester building to make amends of any deficiency of repair and affirm any costs incurred back from the occupant as an obligation.
For the possession, through the court, you have to file an application in the county court in Gloucestershire.
You will have to complete a standard claim form that in Gloucester can also be submitted via the internet in some courts.
Moreover, the landlord has to provide the notice in the presence of the Solicitor to the tenant in Gloucester.
This is a complex area of law, and any mistakes can delay your repossession in Abbeydale, Barnwood, or Coney Hill and be costly, so you need to take legal advice.
Your tenant can apply to court in Gloucestershire for forfeiture relief if specific conditions are met.
However, the tenant isn't entitled to this automatically, it is a process available from the court, but if the tenant can gain this then they will probably be allowed to continue to live in the Gloucester property under their previous lease.
The occupant in Gloucester will submit as soon as they receive a notification of section 146 because if they are found to have excessively hesitated, they will be penalized.
