Commercial Rent Arrears Recovery (CRAR)

As soon as your tenant is in arrears, whether or not you think they will pay after a few days, contact ERE immediately. We will send a 7 day Notice of Enforcement to the tenant giving them 7 clear days to pay. This is known as the Compliance Stage. The cost set out by CRAR for this first stage of enforcement is £75 plus VAT (£90.00), payable by the tenant. ERE do not charge landlords or managing agents. If the tenant pays in full or arranges a payment plan within the 7 day period, there will be no further charges made. If the tenant fails to pay within the 7 days, we then move on to Second Stage of Enforcement, this is achieved by sending one of our Enforcement Agents directly to the tenant’s premises to “Take Control of the Goods” and arrange payment. This is known as the Enforcement Stage.
