Reentry

Taking back, or literally reentering, property that belongs to the person entering the property but that, until a specific event has happened, was lawfully occupied by another. A landlord properly reenters property that a tenant has clearly abandoned; and a bank reenters when it has foreclosed upon a mortgage or deed of trust.
