Re SSRL Realisations Ltd (In Administration)

Landlord and tenant – Forfeiture of lease. The applicant landlord applied for permission to forfeit the lease held by the fourth respondent tenant, which was in administration, by peaceable re-entry. The Companies Court, in allowing the application, held that the purpose of the administration would not be impeded by granting the landlord permission to pursue its proprietary rights and that there was no identifiable purpose of the administration which would be served by limiting the landlord to seeking forfeiture by legal proceedings, rather than by peaceable re-entry.
