In one of the four webinars inclusive in Property Section membership, Louise Clark takes a fresh look at CRAR, 18 months after it replaced the law of distress, and explains how practitioners can engage effectively with the regime.

Distress for commercial rent arrears was abolished by the Tribunals Courts and Enforcement Act 2007 and the Taking Control of Goods Regulations 2013. These reforms created the process known as Commercial Rent Arrears Recovery (CRAR) which landlords must abide by when seizing a tenant’s goods for failure to pay rent. The changes came into effect on 6 April 2014. 18 months on, how is the new system operating?

This webinar will examine:

• The key procedural changes which came into force on 6 April 2014
• The operation of CRAR in relation to mixed use schemes
• Controlled Goods Agreements
• Recovery of rent from undertenants
• What steps can landlords take to strengthen their position?
• CRAR in practice.
