Commercial Rent Arrears Recovery (CRAR)

At SLC Solicitors, we appreciate that not all sites under management by our clients will be solely for residential property. We have therefore developed a team with specific skills to manage the recovery of rent and service charge arrears for commercial properties.

Exercising CRAR

Our team are highly knowledgeable about the different and varying legislation governing commercial lettings and can offer a specialist service tailored to your individual needs.

We are always abreast of the latest updates to ensure we provide the best possible service for all our clients. In addition, our close working relationships with enforcement agents enables them to achieve a high recovery success rate.

The rules governing Commercial Rent Arrears Recovery (CRAR) are strict and are therefore not always appropriate for all clients. In these circumstances and wherever possible, our specialists will suggest an alternative effective method of recovery to our clients.

We also seek to recover arrears by serving a forfeiture notice under s146 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1925. The threat of forfeiture is often enough to prompt immediate payment from the defaulting tenant. However, if they continue to fail to make payment, the process can be escalated by seeking a possession order.
