As a commercial landlord, even under the new bailiff regulations, you still hold a special creditors privilege that no other type of creditor has.
This is to use Certificated Bailiffs or Certificated Enforcement Agents as we are now called to execute warrants on your behalf for rent arrears without the need to go to a court.
This is CRAR, Commercial Rent Arrears Recovery. There are of course some rules and criteria to be met in order to do so.
