Pure Commercial Rent is collected and enforced by following the rules and regulations as set out in the Commercial Rent Arrears Recovery (CRAR) which is contained within the Tribunals, Courts & Enforcement Act 2007.
The new Act although dated 2007 did not actually come into force until 2014 which was when the new regulations were implemented across the whole of the enforcement industry. On the 6th April 2014, the Common Law remedy or distraint or distress for rent was abolished. It was replaced by CRAR (Commercial Rent Arrears Recovery). At Global Enforcement Solutions Ltd (GES), our internal agents along with enforcement agents have the expertise and knowledge of this regime. Under section 72 schedule 12 (taking control of goods) a commercial landlord can recover rent payable under the lease of the tenant without the need to go to court.
