As a landlord, if your tenant becomes insolvent and unable to pay their rent it can have a significant impact on your rights. In particular, it can lead to legal difficulties concerning:

  • Your ability to recover rent arrears
  • Your right to forfeit the lease
  • Any possession claim to recover the property
  • Dilapidations

Luscombe Gray can explain how your rights are affected and provide legal solutions to help safeguard your interests.
