What is RE-ENTRY

The entering again into or resuming possession of premises. Thus in leases there is a proviso for re-entry of the lessor on the tenant’s failure to pay the rent or perform the covenants contained in the lease, and by virtue of such proviso the lessor may take the premises into his own hands again if the rent be not paid or cove- nants performed; and this resumption of possession is termed “re-entry.” 2 Cruise, Dig. 8; Cowell. And see Michaels v. Fishel, 160 N. Y. 381, 62 N. E. 425; Earl Orchard Co. v. Fava, 138 Cal. 76, 70 Pac. 1073.
