Rent arrears and service charge claims
We advise landlords on their enforcement options in the event of a tenant’s default. We have considerable experience in acting in relation to arrears claims, forfeiting leases, dealing with bailiffs, rent deposit issues, serving statutory demands and petitions to wind up or bankrupt tenants.
Our team also advises on the liability of third parties, including the enforceability of lease guarantees and the claims against former tenants and sub-tenants.
Our service charge experience includes advising on the interpretation of service charge clauses, challenging service charge demands, advice on landlords’ insolvency, and the implications of recent changes to legislation and practice guidelines, particularly the RICS Service Charge Codes.
We provide a specialist service to commercial and residential management companies, and work with many well known large landlords and managing agents.
We understand the need for cost effective and rapid solutions to legal issues, especially where there is unpaid rent or service charges. Timely and accurate reporting on the claims process is important to our clients and we have established systems to provide our clients and their managing agents with up-to-date information.
