Sorry, is this a residential lease or commercial lease?
Thanks for your reply.
This means I must make a slight revision to my previous answer, sorry. The company will have to apply to Court for forfeiture and an order for possession, they cannot evict you without a court order in this case.
In practice forfeiture enforcement in residential leases is very rare and I would not expect them to make or to actually be granted an order for possession for that level of arrears, so I doubt you will be faced with repossession proceedings. They may apply for a charging order against the registered title to the property which means that when it is sold you will have to repayment the amount of the charge + interest.
In any event, you will receive notice of any such application and will be at liberty to defend.

Sorry for the delay in reply, I had a unexpectadly busy day yesterday.
I can't comment on whether the company can or can't add charges to the debt because I haven't see the ruling, but provided the charges are chargeable under the lease and they are reasonable then I would expect them to be able to.
You could attempt to have another hearing in front of the judge regarding getting them to accept the repayment of arrers
