So for tenants of commercial properties with rent arrears, there is an ability of the landlord to begin proceedings to seize and then sell the tenants own goods in order to pay.   To confirm the level of any arrears, the loan administrator will contact the tenant’s landlord, or where applicable the landlord’s letting agent, for verification of the tenant’s current circumstances. This will include the amount of monthly rent due, the level of outstanding rent arrears and the dates that the arrears relate to. the rent and any arrears. We can recover all rent arrears owed from any individual joint tenant. If one joint tenant leaves, the remaining joint tenant or tenants are responsible for any rent that may still be owed.’ Rent charges may be altered from time to time and are reviewed each year in line with government policy.   If you choose this route, you will need to claim for the rent arrears separately, using Money Claim Online (MCOL).
