The terms of a proviso for re-entry require that, if the landlord elects to determine the lease for a forfeiture, he must do so by re-entry1, which the landlord may effect either by physically entering upon the premises with the intention of determining the tenancy2, or by the issue and service3 of proceedings for the recovery of possession of the premises.
In the case of forfeiture for non-payment of rent, the landlord must first make formal demand for payment4, unless this requirement is dispensed with by suitable words in the proviso5, or by statute.
Usually, the formal demand is expressly dispensed
