§36-4-15. Covenant for reentry for default of lessee.
If in a lease it be provided that "the lessor may reenter
for default in the payment of rent or for the breach of
covenants," or if the lease contains words of like import, such
words shall have the effect of an agreement that if the rent
reserved, or any part thereof, be unpaid on or after the day
specified in the deed for the payment thereof, or if any of the
other covenants on the part of the lessee, his personal
representatives or assigns, be broken, then, in either of such
cases, the lessor, or those entitled in his place, at any time
afterwards, into and upon the demised premises, or any part
thereof, in the name of the whole, may reenter and the same again
have, repossess and enjoy, as of his or their former estate.
