Discusses, by reference to case law, the Chancery Division decision in Rother District Investments Ltd v Corke, in an action concerning a claim for arrears of rent by company to who a headlease had been transferred, that the purported peaceable re-entry of the property by the landlord prior to registration of its ownership of the reversion amounted to forfeiture by estoppel so that the landlord was precluded from avoiding the legal consequences of its actions namely that entitlement to recover rent arrears under the Law of Property Act 1925 s.141 continued to be vested in the previous headlessor.
