In order to bring about an effective forfeiture of a lease, the landlord must take some positive and unequivocal step to signify to the tenant his intention of treating the lease as at an end as a consequence of the tenant's default. This may be done, under a forfeiture cluae, either by the landlord suing the tenant for possession or physically re-entering the demised premises. If the landlord opts for the latter mode of forfeiture, how does the landlord effect a physical re-entry and what are the restrictions on him doing so, given that the tenant may be opposed to a physical re-possession.
