The landlord says I have breached my lease. What happens if I breach the terms of my lease?

A lease is a contract between you as a leaseholder and the landlord. So if you breach the terms of your lease, you would be breaching the terms of such contract.

If you are found by the court to be in breach of the lease, the court could order you to pay damages, legal costs and/or ask you to put right any breach if it is possible to do so.

The landlord may also seek possession of your flat which is also referred to as forfeiture.

If your landlord takes action against you for breach of the lease, you may require the services of a solicitor.
