Lease Forfeiture Derby

Case Study Derby

The Problem of sub-letting

We were instructed by a commercial landlord of a large retail premise in Derby to execute a CRAR procedure to recover commercial rent arrears.

CRAR is a common assignment for Enforcement Bailiffs. But this one turned out to be a bit different.

When our bailiffs turned up to the property it was discovered that:

  • the tenant was not in occupation.
  • he had unlawfully divided the property up into four units, each with separate sub-tenant in occupation.

Commercial Rent Arrears Recovery was no longer the answer to the overdue rent. There was the more pressing problem of four sub-tenants.

After discussing the options with the landlords solicitors it was agreed we would take peaceable possession of all units in the early hours of the following morning.

This is what was done. The sub-tenants signed temporary agreements with the landlord so that they could remain in the units.

The result for the landlord:

  • he was back in control and collecting future rents.
  • his solicitors could sort things out with the original tenant.

A Commercial Rent Arrears Recovery turned into a very successful peaceable possession of commercial property in Derby.
