He works for a fairly large company and always has some interesting stories to share when it comes to tenants and rental contracts. He gave her the chance to clean up the place, but when she did not comply two weeks later, he told her to get off. She thought he was overreacting, but I think she did not pay attention to that clause when she signed the lease. Forfeiture is the right of a landlord to terminate a tenancy agreement following a tenant break-up. A lessor can only let the lease expire if it is so: the nature of the knowledge of the tenancy may interfere with the waiver. Offences are often divided into two categories: continuous and one for all offences. Common examples of persistent infringements are: an expiry clause is a common clause in a commercial lease and may allow the lessor to terminate the lease (i.e. terminate) if the tenant does not meet its obligations. A breach of a commercial tenancy agreement may include: If a lease agreement is in the event of non-payment of rent, the jurisdiction to reduce the debt in respect of forfeiture retains in part its historical origin arising from the inherent legitimate jurisdiction of the court. In essence, it is up to the lessor to decide: does he lose as soon as he is aware of the violation, or does he consider the lease to be lost by renouncing the right to forfeiture? For example, a landlord cannot say that a lease has expired if he is doing something that could only be done if the lease is still in place.

For example, asking for or accepting rent. The lessor waives the right to forfeiture only if it acts in a manner that amounts to a clear recognition of the lease. The test is factual, so that if, in one case, a particular act could be reduced to a waiver in other circumstances, the same act could be treated differently. Forfeiture is not easy. While some landlords will try to expire by simply changing the locks without a court decision, this is very risky and can lead to a costly request for exemption by the tenant, plus a possible claim for lost business or damage to the business. If the tenancy agreement is cancelled for failure to pay the rent, the tenant is entitled to the automatic exemption from forfeiture. There are different time scales and technical possibilities that are too broad to discuss, but essentially, the tenant has to pay all arrears, interest and fees. There have also been situations where the tenant has not resolved any problems that he has accepted in the tenancy agreement.
