Tenant Insolvency & Landlords’ Rights

There are many different kinds of insolvency procedure and while some are highly restrictive of the actions a landlord might wish to take, others are not. It is not enough to settle for the information that the tenant has ‘gone bust’ and simply wait to see what payment, if any, emerges. Landlords and their advisers need to be aware of the forms insolvency and pre-insolvency procedures may take, what options remain open and the effective routes to maximising payment of rent and other sums, or obtaining possession if required. This recording takes a practical approach to the issues raised by tenant insolvency.
