What Our Clients Say

Unpaid Rent or Rent Arrears

Is your tenant in rent arrears?

There are many levels of rent arrears and landlords are often confused as to what action they should take and when.

If your tenant is simply late paying the rent, talk to them.  It is better to open up lines of communication as early as possible to avoid long periods of no rent and having to take court proceedings incurring costs that may not be recoverable.

There may be some genuine reason for your tenant not to have paid their rent and if it is a temporary set back, you could agree to a payment plan.  We can assist you with setting up a suitable repayment plan that allows you to work with your tenant and recover any arrears in a convenient time frame.

If you have allowed your tenant to run up rent arrears which are now in excess of 2 months, we can advise you on action that includes serving a notice informing the tenant of the arrears that currently exist and what action they can take to avoid any formal proceedings being taken against them.  Just because you serve a notice, doesn’t mean that you cannot come to an agreement with your tenant.

If, however, your efforts of resolving the matter amicably with your tenant fails, you can take, 2 courses of action: a small claim in the County Court or possession proceedings.  We can assist you with both, on a fixed fee basis.
