Rent Arrears - Legal Advice For Landlords

Many landlords will at some point unfortunately find themselves with a tenant in rent arrears.

We regularly advise landlords on their options to recover rent arrears from their tenants. There are several remedies available to landlords, and the approach a landlord takes will depend on its relationship with the tenant, the tenant's circumstances and the landlord's long term objectives.

Some of the landlord's remedies are time limited and can be waived depending on the steps the landlord takes when the tenant falls into arrears. It is important that a landlord take advice quickly, to preserve all of its options available.

How Can We Help?

For landlords, our rent arrears solicitors can:

  • Advise landlords on the remedies available to recover the arrears and the best strategy to adopt
  • Assist the landlord with the recovery of the arrears, by enforcing the landlord's chosen remedy
  • Negotiate with the tenant if possible, to recover the arrears as amicably and as cost effectively as possible

There are lots of factors for a landlord to weigh up when deciding how to recover a tenant's arrears. A landlord should take advice on its options at an early stage, so that it can preserve its remedies available, whilst it considers the approach to take.
