Landlord and Tenant Insolvency.

Mundays’ property disputes team has extensive experience in acting for landlords and tenants in insolvency related property matters.

Everyone is aware of the significant impact which Covid-19 has had on the finances of individuals and businesses. In the most unfortunate cases, an individual may be declared bankrupt or a business may enter into some form of insolvency process, such as Administration or Liquidation. Different rules and laws will apply to your situation depending on which type of insolvency has arisen.

The following are just some of the questions we are regularly asked and to which a landlord or tenant will want quick, commercial and cost effective answers.

If you are a landlord and your tenant is insolvent:

  • How do you recover the unpaid rent?
  • Are you able to enforce your rights under the lease?
  • Are you entitled to seek possession?
  • Even if you can seek possession, is it in your interests to do so?
  • Can you pursue third parties for the tenant’s liabilities?
  • What about the business rates, utilities and dilapidations liabilities?
  • What is a notice of disclaimer and how might it affect you?

If you are a tenant or a sub-tenant and your landlord is insolvent:

  • Who do you pay your rent to?
  • Does the landlord’s insolvency affect your lease and your rights of occupation?
  • What about your rent deposit – is it safe?
  • What is a notice of disclaimer and how might it affect you?
  • What steps can you take to seek to ensure your long term future occupation at the property?
