See translation of sentence below:
Explanation:
Hat der Leasingnehmer/Mieter [choose depending on the context] es unterlassen, einen zu zahlenden Betrag bei Fälligkeit zu leisten, ist der Leasingnehmer/Mieter dem Leasinggeber/Vermieter gegenüber zur Zahlung einer Vertragsstrafe für jeden Fall der Unterlassung verpflichtet.

The translation of "lawfully" is not required here, as I turned the concept of "lawfully forfaiting" (rechtmäßig verwirken) around to being "verpflichtet".
