It is not uncommon that at some point during the term of the tenancy a landlord will have to deal with a tenant falling behind with the rent. Sometimes arrangements for payment made with the tenant will remedy the situation quickly. However, the landlord should seek legal advice on the available remedies as early as possible, to prevent a situation where the tenant falls into significant rent arrears.
Our dispute resolution team has strong expertise and practical approach when assisting landlord clients in such situations. We can offer advice and guide the landlord through the options available to them, which include forfeiture, CRAR, court proceedings, statutory demand and others.
