Rent Arrears Recovery Solicitors
If your tenants are in arrears on their rent for your rental property, you need to ensure that you take the appropriate steps to recover the money you are owed. Your tenants may still be in the property, or may have left already without paying you. Either way, we can help you determine the options available to you.
Our specialist team advises clients in different languages on a wide range of Property Law matters. Call them on 0208 1111 911 or contact them through the website to discuss your circumstances with them.
How do I go about recovering rent owed to me by a tenant?
First, you should look to negotiate directly with the tenant and try to resolve the problem amicably. Like most of our clients, you will probably have tried this approach already by the time you contact us. If so, we can then advise you on the right process to follow.
If the tenants have already left your property, the process is significantly easier if you have a new address for them. If not, it is possible to try to trace them, which is a logical first step in the process. If they can’t be traced, the chances of recovery will be low, and we would often advise against incurring more fees and simply writing the debt off.
However, if the former tenant can be traced, we can then advise on the next steps towards recovering the money. If you have an ongoing dispute with a tenant over rent arrears, we recommend that you contact us promptly to get specialist legal advice.
What other legal services might I need?
If you’ve yet to evict your tenants, we can also advise on Tenant Evictions. If you’d like to review your processes to help avoid similar disputes in future, we can also review your Tenancy Agreements.
