Receivership Services

Mortgage debt recovery can often throw up complex problems particularly when insolvency issues intrude into the picture.

We act for many of the UK’s leading mortgage lenders, including two of the largest buy-to-let lenders. In this context we have developed acknowledged expertise validating receivership appointments and acting in all aspects of receiverships on both commercial and residential property portfolios, including:

  • Appointment validation
  • Advising on receivers’ powers
  • Company appointments by next business day (section 33 Insolvency Act 1986)
  • Trespass claims against unauthorised occupiers
  • Claims for possession based on rent arrears
  • Defended possession claims (Human Rights/disrepair etc)
  • Accelerated possession claims
  • Deposit protection issues

We aim to identify the more complex cases as early as possible and hand them to our most skilled and experienced lawyers. They will attempt to resolve insolvency and receivership-related issues as quickly and commercially as possible, while vigorously defending our clients’ interests. Our clients rely on us for transparent, no nonsense, pragmatic advice on all these issues.
