Thomas Mann said “there is only one real misfortune: to forfeit one’s own good opinion of oneself”. Sadly, this is not true: attempts to forfeit a lease can lead to not just one but very many misfortunes for the unwary property litigator. This seminar will cover the basics as well as some of the most frequently overlooked pitfalls in forfeiture of residential, agricultural and commercial leases, and examine recent cases including Toms
v Ruberry  EWHC 2970 (QB), Crown Estate Commissioners v Wakley  EWHC 3610 (Ch), and Pineport v Grangeglen  EWHC 1318 (Ch), as well as those from our own practice.
The seminar will be led by Ciara Fairley and Mark Galtrey.
