Event to explain rent arrears recovery changes

Corporate rent arrears collector Parkinson Bailiff and law firm Hill Dickinson are co-hosting a free seminar in Manchester next week to explain the introduction of Commercial Rent Arrears Recovery laws.

CRAR is due to replace the Law of Distress from 6 April 2014. The ancient law of distress allows a landlord to instruct a bailiff to seize goods at premises where rent is owed. The aim of CRAR is to strike a balance between landlord and tenant interests in a manner which also modernises the procedure. Primarily, the regulations include information on how enforcement agents can take control of goods.

Among the measures is guidance that landlords must give a minimum period of seven clear days' notice in writing to a tenant before making use of CRAR, when agents are able to take control of goods, which goods will be exempt and the process for the selling and handling of such goods.

Among the speakers, Ralph Bullivant, partner in property litigation at Hill Dickinson, be on hand to answer any questions from the audience.

The seminar is due to take place on Thursday 24 October at Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotel, Manchester, from 9.30am to 11.30am.
