CRAR Protective Warrants of Control

A special facility for commercial tenants that have reported financial hardship and are seeking time to pay.

CRAR Protective Warrants of Control

A CRAR Protective Warrant of Control provides an alternative to traditional CRAR enforcement, and has particular relevance during this uncertain time created by the COVID-19 outbreak during which temporary legislation has been introduced that stays landlords’ ability to activate enforcement procedures until rent has been due for at least 90 days or more.

This new service enables you to maintain a level of control over any bad debt cases whilst adhering to the latest legislation, whilst at the time providing a supportive approach to tenants suffering negative cash flow impacts as a result of the COVID-19 crisis.

Why choose a Protective Warrant of Control from Debt Squared Group?
