There could be a multitude reasons why commercial property owners in Hackney could want to regain building possession, one of the most common reasons is broken lease terms by the tenant, for example, disrupting the neighbours, damaging the Hackney property, failure to pay rent or leasing the property further without the tenants' knowledge.
Taking possession of your property in Hackney is considered' forfeiture' while used by a resident.
You need to add a clause in your lease agreement to let you forfeit the lease.
It's recommended that all leases of commercial property in Greater London include a forfeit clause because without one, your powers as the landlord are extremely limited.
Where you have the right to forfeit in Hackney, this can be done in one of two methods:
This involves the landlord entering the property in Aldersbrook, Sewardstone, or Bow and physically changing the locks.
To be more risky it is considered as your tenants could choose to go to court in Greater London for 'relief forfeiture', and where the tenant claims compensation for incurred losses and repossesses as a result from eviction in Hackney that is wrongful.
This is generally the preferred route in Hackney, although it can be costly and time-consuming, as with any court proceedings, and it should only be considered a last resort.
Your reasons for regaining possession could have a role in deciding the route taken by you.
You are not required to give notice of your plan to forfeit in the case of non-payment of rent in Hackney; you may easily re-enter the premises.
It is best not to let the tenant know regarding duration of tenancy in Hackney, like reminding them of overdue rent, because resultantly your right to forfeit would be waivered and you won't be able to do anything until the next overdue rent payment.
However, it's advisable to leave a notice of repossession on the door in Bow, Sewardstone, or Aldersbrook and have a witness such as your solicitor accompany you.
For any other violations, you must first perform a section 146 notification before you can take back the ownership of the building in Hackney.
The notice on all interested parties, including the tenant, any mortgagee, and any subtenant in Greater London must be served by your solicitor.
Nature of violation in Hackney must be mentioned on notice with its solution which can either be remedial action or in form of compensation amount within a specific deadline.
If these demands are not met, then the property you can continue to forfeit the lease.
Repair-related violation notices involve more regulations in Hackney.
You may be required to offer the tenant in Bow, Sewardstone, or Aldersbrook the chance to claim statutory protection in some cases.
This protection needs to be sought by the Hackney 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 Greater London before making any further moves.
This can be exceptional only if the agreement includes a clause about entering the premises in Hackney for repairing any fault at premises and claim the costs of the repair from the tenant as a debt.
If you want to carry out forfeiture, you must make an application for possession in the Greater London county court to start the court procedure.
Standard claim forms must be filed, some courts permit the online submission of these forms in Hackney.
After that, the tenant in Hackney would receive the claim forms, through a solicitor within a specific time bracket.
You should constantly receive legal advice on this as it is a complicated area of law, and errors can be expensive and slow down your reclaiming in Bow, Sewardstone, or Aldersbrook.
The tenants can apply to the Greater London court for relief from the forfeiture if some of the certain conditions are settled and maintained.
Although that's not the tenant's automatic rights, the court can offer this remedy at its discretion that may allow the tenant to continue using the premises in Hackney while the existing lease lasts.
A tenant in Hackney who has received a section 146 notice must make an application as soon as they can since they'll be fined if discovered to have delayed intentionally.
