Warning to Tenant regarding Immobilisation of Goods under CRAR
This Warning to Tenant regarding Immobilisation of Goods under CRAR can be used in connection with the Commercial Rent Arrears Recovery procedure which came into force on 6 April 2014.
CRAR replaces the old remedy of distress, which allowed landlords to seize and sell property belonging to a tenant who had rent arrears. The new regime is more limited in scope and sets out a prescribed enforcement procedure.
Landlords and enforcement agents should note that temporary changes have been made to the CRAR regime in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. The procedure may only be used where there are at least 544 days' worth of rent arrears. These provisions apply until 25 March 2022.
If an enforcement agent has entered the tenant’s premises and has fitted an immobilisation device on goods belonging to the tenant he must give the tenant an Immobilisation Warning notice. The Warning must be affixed in a prominent position on the immobilised goods.
This Warning to Tenant is in the form required by the Taking Control of Goods Regulations 2013. The blanks in the form should be completed with the appropriate information. No paragraphs should be deleted as this may invalidate the Notice.
In paragraphs 1-3 details of the Property, Lease and Landlord need to be inserted.
In paragraph 6 the time of the immobilization must be inserted and the enforcement agent must give a telephone number for enquiries which is available 24 hours a day.
This Warning to Tenant regarding Immobilisation of Goods under CRAR is in open format. Either enter the requisite details in the highlighted fields or adjust the wording to suit your purposes.
