    Default Commercial Property with No Lease

    I have a commercial property which is occupied by a former friend, who paid rent on a monthly basis, until recently. There is NO lease just a verbal agreement to pay the rent monthly. The tenant has now stopped paying and will not sign a lease that I have offered. Question - Can I send in a Bailiff to Distrain for the rent (£5000) even though there is no lease, but there is a payment history, or can I have the locks changed when the premises are occupied. Any help appreciated!!

    Distress for rent can be used under Common Law, Most Bailiffs will not forfeit a lease without seeing a written lease agreement in place with the relevant clause.
