If the tenant breaches the terms of the lease then the landlord has the right to forfeit the lease i.e. bring it to an end. If the breach is non-payment of rent and the premises are used for business purposes then forfeiture can be effected by the landlord re-entering and simply changing the locks.
The final sanction for a landlord faced with a leaseholder in breach of his lease due to the failure to pay is to forfeit the lease and to peacefully repossess the property.
