JA: Hello. How can I help?
Customer: We have had a notice of enforcement- I was just wondering if they can break in? - the business has stop trading 3 months ago and we are not in the area?
JA: Where are they? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: UK- business is in cornwall - the Notice is from court in northampton
JA: What steps have they taken so far?
Customer: Also the lease is in our personal names - not the business name - but the trading name is ***** ***** the address- does this make a difference?
JA: Anything else you want the Lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: We set up a payment plan - and we only paid 1 payment - they have sent other legal contact forms - but I do not have to hand

Is it for a business or private?

Ok - will the premises be open?

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
No - it has been closed for 5 months now
Customer: replied 15 days ago.
We were just about to send out striking off letters as the business does not have enough money or assets to apply for liquidation

Ok - then no, they can't break in.

If it was to repossess for a lease arrears then yes

But for a debt, then no

Even if it is for a commercial Lease?

Yes. Only if its arrears for utilities or arrears can they break in.

Does that assist?
