The landlords of commercial properties in Reading can take back the possession of their premises for many reasons, usually, they end the tenancy when the tenant is in breach of their lease terms; such as being nuisance to neighbours, not keeping the Reading premises in good repair, not paying rent or subletting the premises without the landlord's consent.
The Claiming possession of premise in Reading, while it is still occupied by the tenant, is known as 'forfeiture'.
However, forfeiture is only possible if there is a specific clause in the lease, enabling you to do so.
Inclusion of such class in the agreement is strongly recommended to include these clauses in all Berkshire commercial leases as lack of such a clause can restrict your powers.
You can carry out the activity in Reading using either of the options:
This entails you successfully enter the property in Reading, Woodley, or Thatcham and switch the locks.
However, it's considered risky because the tenant can take back possession with a 'relief from forfeiture' claim in Berkshire court and claims compensation for losses incurred if they were wrongfully evicted in Reading.
This is the typical method used in Reading, you can use the help of the court and the court will provide you with possession orders, however, this method is lengthy and costly.
Your choice depends upon the reason for eviction.
If the tenant has failed to pay rent in Reading, then the landlord is not legally obliged to provide notice of the intention to forfeit the property; you can easily re-enter the property.
It is important that you do not show any form of approval of their presence on the property in Reading such as reminding them of overdue rent, because this may result in a termination of your forfeiture rights and you may have to delay until they miss the next lease payment.
You can simply leave a notice of repossession on the door of the property in Reading, Thatcham, or Woodley and don't forget to bring a witness with you, a solicitor or a locksmith.
In case of any other breaches, you must serve a section 146 notice before you are bound to premises repossession in Reading.
All parties, such as any mortgagee, subtenant and tenant in Berkshire should be served the notice by your solicitor.
It must define the extent of the violation in Reading and whether, within a reasonable time, this needs remedial action or monetary pay-out.
You can forfeit the lease if the breach is not rectified or reimbursed.
Notices for repair condition breaches have some additional rules in Reading.
In certain situations, you may be required to provide the tenant in Reading, Thatcham, or Woodley the chance to claim statutory protection.
When the tenant in Reading uses this protection, they must respond within 28 days of getting a section 146 notice and the landlord must get a preliminary claim from the court in Berkshire before taking any further action.
This may be prevented if the rental agreement includes a clause that empowers the landlord to enter the property in Reading and correct any repair deficit and claim the incurred costs of repair as debts to be paid by the tenant.
This procedure involves making an application for possession in the county court in Berkshire.
The landlord has to fill the standard claim forms which in Reading can either be done online in some courts.
Then the solicitor needs to serve these forms to the tenants in Reading within a strict time frame.
As it is a law area that is complicated, you should always take legal advice on this, and errors can slow down your repossession in Reading, Woodley, or Thatcham and be costly.
The tenants can apply to the Berkshire court for relief from the forfeiture if some of the certain conditions are settled and maintained.
The occupant doesn't possess an automated right yet; this is an optional solution accessible to the court, but if approved, they may be able to proceed to inhabit the building in Reading under their occurring rent.
