Tenant insolvency is on no landlord’s wish list. However, more and more tenants are becoming insolvent, and recovering rent arrears can be complex, costly and time-consuming. Furthermore, there has also been a significant increase in CVAs being offered to companies as a better alternative to liquidation, but it is often the landlords that pay the price.

This seminar will discuss recent cases of tenant insolvency, including CVAs, and consider the most efficient and cost-effective options for landlords and other property professionals involved.

Attend this seminar to better advise your clients through a better understanding of tenant insolvency, including:

  • Identifying different types of insolvency
