Commercial Rent Arrears Recovery (CRAR) Service

Our Commercial Rent Arrears Recovery (CRAR) Service

We incorporate credit control teams to provide comprehensive research into previous transgressions, escalating cases quickly when necessary or flagging the potential risk that a tenant may try to avoid paying altogether.

There is no cost exposure to you as either the landlord or commercial letting agent. We provide ongoing progress reports and updates as the recovery process develops, ensuring full control throughout.

Clearway can also provide safeguarding controls, such as a legal charge registered through a Protective Controlled Goods Agreement, which provides security for you that, in the event of non-payment, there is a mechanism for you to reclaim assets to the value of the unpaid amount.

Putting a legal charge in place is a short-term protection plan and works alongside a repayment schedule to ensure the safety and assurance of all parties.
