From a legal perspective rent arrears claims are usually a breach of contract claim. We have significant expertise in this legal area and specialise in resolving problems for landlords including rent arrears and unpaid service charges.
Often the rent or service charge arrears themselves are not significant sums. Subject to the content of the lease involved we are often able to apply further pressure and leverage against a tenant by maximising your claim and entitlement. As a matter of course that means calculating and including interest, statutory compensation, and costs.
We look at the situation in the round and give commercial advice we would want to receive ourselves in your position. We are typically happy to back our advice by offering no win, no fee agreements or alternatively fixed fees.
A landlord will typically have 6 years to pursue unpaid rent. We can also assist with tracing services to locate former tenants and asset searches with land registry to see whether a former tenant owns their current address.
If you are owed rent arrears or service charges don’t hesitate to contact us and we will be happy to discuss your options with you. Call 01273 761990 or email [email protected] and we will be happy to help.
