If you own some commercial properties in Tamworth, there are several reasons why you may consider taking your premises back, the commonest reason is a breach of the lease terms by the tenants, and lack of proper Tamworth property maintenance, payment default, constituting nuisance to the community, and subletting the premises without your permission are some outstanding reasons why you may consider the eviction option.
Forfeiture refers to regaining possession of your property in Tamworth as a landlord when a tenant has occupied it.
You should have a specific clause that allows the landlord to take back their properties from tenants.
It's recommended that all commercial landlords in Staffordshire include such clause because, without it, your powers as a landlord are restricted.
If you ascertained your rights to forfeit in Tamworth, you can do so using two ways:
This involves the landlord entering the property in Coton, Belgrave, or Amington and physically changing the locks.
This is a risky method as the tenant could later apply for assistance in court in Staffordshire in order to retain possession of the property along with claiming any compensation for the way they were terminated in Tamworth as it could have caused prospective loss.
This is the most favourable way in Tamworth, even though the proceedings take undue time and are costly, but this route is advised as the last resort.
The grounds for possession usually determine the method you may decide to use.
Landlords are not obligated to inform the tenant of a forfeiture with respect to failure to pay rent in Tamworth, they can simply gain entrance into the property.
It is important that you do not show any form of approval of their presence on the property in Tamworth 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.
It is recommended that you drop a notice of repossession at the front door of the property in Amington, Coton, or Belgrave in the presence of a witness such as a locksmith, or even your solicitor is recommended.
It would help if you first served a section 146 notice for any other breaches before you can take possession of the property in Tamworth.
Your solicitor must serve the notice to everyone involved including the landlord, subtenant and the tenant in Staffordshire.
The nature of the breach in Tamworth must be specified and whether it requires remedial action or payment of compensation.
If the violation has not been resolved or if the settlement has not been paid as stated, then the process of forfeiture may begin.
Notices for repair condition breaches have some additional rules in Tamworth.
In some instances, tenants in Coton, Amington, or Belgrave must be given statutory rights to claim.
Before taking any further action, the landlord must make a preliminary claim for the Staffordshire court's permission if the tenant in Tamworth claims this protection within 28 days of receiving a section 146 notice.
This may be prevented if the rental agreement includes a clause that empowers the landlord to enter the property in Tamworth and correct any repair deficit and claim the incurred costs of repair as debts to be paid by the tenant.
Forfeiture only starts in the county court in Staffordshire where the application is made.
You must complete the standard claim forms for this purpose and in Tamworth you can now submit these forms online in some courts.
The forms will then be served to the tenant in Tamworth preferably by your solicitor within a strict time-frame.
Legal advice is suggested in this case as it is a complicated part of the law and mistakes could cause delays in repossession in Amington, Coton, or Belgrave and cost money.
In some specific conditions, your tenant can apply for relief from forfeiture in the court in Staffordshire.
This is not automatic however, this is a court prevention measure, but if granted they may be in a position to continue to stay in the premise in Tamworth under their existing lease.
As soon as the section 146 notice is delivered, the tenant in Tamworth needs to make an application to the court because if they delayed the application unnecessarily, they will be penalized.
