Forfeiture is used to terminate a commercial lease where there has been a breach of a clause(s) within the lease.
What is a Forfeiture?
A forfeiture can be instructed by a landlord or their agent where the right to forfeit is written within the lease. Upon instruction evidence of this clause will be requested. A certificated enforcement agent will be used to carry out the forfeit.
