Forfeit a lease

About this business activity

If a tenant wants to break their lease, they may be able to forfeit it. This means giving up their rights to the property and leaving. The landlord can then re-let the property. The tenant will still be liable for any rent owed up to the date that the property is re-let.

  • The notice should be served on the tenant
