If a commercial tenant doesn’t pay their rent, then a commercial landlord has grounds to regain possession of the property and evict the tenant. This is called forfeiture.  


A Statutory Demand can be served if payment of rent is not made in 21 days. In addition, under the Commercial Rent Arrears Recovery Notice, a landlord can give the tenant seven days to leave the property after which, a certified Enforcement Agent can enter the building to recover and sell the tenant's items such as furniture or computers so that they can be recompensed for rent arrears.
