Commercial Rent Arrears Recovery

The long anticipated introduction of the Commercial Rent Arrears Recovery regime arrived on 6 April replacing the centuries old distress for rent regime. At the moment no-one knows quite what to expect in practice except that the early period of its operation will quite likely result in court cases to determine the meaning and extent of the new rules.

Apart from the modernisation of terminology and the jettisoning of old terms such as “walking possession” the new regime will make it more difficult for landlords of commercial premises to remove goods from the tenant’s premises for failure to pay rent.  The new CRAR regime will require a legal notice to be given by an enforcement officer before he can take action and the scope of the landlord’s rights will be reduced in a number of ways.

CRAR is being introduced as part of the Tribunals Courts Enforcement Act 2007 by the Taking Control of Goods Regulations 2013; also being introduced at the same time is a new regime governing the regulation of bailiffs – who from 6 April will be known as “enforcement officers”.

The webinar will cover:

-       The key elements of the new regime

-       To what premises does it apply?

-       The regulation of enforcement officers

-       Interaction with administration, liquidation and personal bankruptcy of tenant

-       Strategies for tenants in financial difficulty
