  • Tenant is visited by a Bailiff and presented with a Notice of Distress and a statement of account.
  • Assets are generally seized by the bailiff's office and may not be removed from the premises by the tenant.
  • If after 5 days the distress is not satisfied, a number of steps follow which may ultimately result in the sale of the assets to resolve the distress.
  • During the distress, the tenant must be allowed access to the premises and to continue to operate their business.
  • A termination effectively ends the lease with a tenant in default.
  • The locks are changed, denying the tenant access to the premises.
  • The Bailiff will post a notice of termination on the entrance to the premises informing the tenant of the action.
  • The landlord gives up any rights to the assets on site under this action.
  • The tenant is required to promptly clean out and remove all assets from the location.
