Debt/Rent Recovery Services
Rent Recovery Pre Court Letter – £30.00*
Show your tenants you are serious about collecting the unpaid rent.
- Our pre court action letter will show your tenants how serious you are about collecting the rent. It can also be used as a warning against damage to property, complaints from neighbours, late payments and any other serious concerns you have.
In a large number of cases this is the only action required to recover the rent.
- Some tenants build up arrears due to persistently paying the rent later each time, with various unlikely excuses as to why it is paid late. These tenants can be deeply frustrating for any landlord. Often our official pre court action warning letter is the shock they need to pay the outstanding rent.
