Course Forfeiture of Leases: The Ultimate Persuader?


The course is aimed at any lawyer advising on or involved in the management of leasehold property, and offers a thorough grounding in the remedy of forfeiture for the more junior practitioner, and a refresher and update for others.

Forfeiture has not been a popular remedy while the letting market has been depressed, but as confidence returns so landlords are more likely to consider it as a serious option. In some circumstances it is the only effective remedy for a breach of covenant. The course will consider the advantages and drawbacks of forfeiture, whether as a means of recovering possession or of exerting pressure to comply with tenants’ covenants.

The course will include:

  • What is required to effect a forfeiture, and when it is too late to change your mind
  • The do’s and don’ts of changing the locks, and the considerations applying to different types of property
  • The waiver trap – nature and effect of waiver of the right to forfeit, and practical hints on avoiding it
  • The various jurisdictions for claiming relief from forfeiture
  • What happens after forfeiture? Re-letting issues, and documenting settlements
