At common law, a landlord has the right to enforce forfeiture of a lease where the tenant breaches a term that is expressed as a condition of the lease agreement. Breach of covenant, on the other hand, does not give a landlord a right to forfeit the lease unless such a right is expressly embodied in the lease agreement.2 In practice, this is rarely an issue as tenancies created by a formal document invariably reserve a right of forfeiture for breach of any covenant, including the covenant to pay rent.
