Rescue, Recovery, and Closure Options for Landlords

While the brunt of the Covid-19 pandemic may be behind us, the lingering effects are still very much with us. The temporary shift towards working from home, has proven to be a lasting cultural shift, something which has ramifications for commercial landlords up and down the country. With more businesses allowing their employees to work in the comfort of their own homes, this has not only lessened demand for office space in prime city centre locations, but also interest from those businesses who used to rely on commuter traffic. 

On the other end of the spectrum, while demand for residential property remains bouyant, the escalating cost of living means tenants falling into arrears with their monthly rent is becoming a far too common occurrence for residential landlords to deal with. 

Vacant properties or tenants failing to pay their rent as and when it falls due, both ultimately present the same challenge for landlords and both have the potential to tip a property company into insolvency if the issue is not dealt with.

Rescue my property management company

A process of restructuring could help ensure your business is operating at in the most effective and cost-effective manner possible. This may take the form of streamlining or simplification which seeks to divest the company of non-profitable channels, allowing vital funds and resources to be diverted to more lucrative areas of the company.

Depending on how your property portfolio is financed, you may be able to explore the possibility of releasing some of this money tied up in assets through a form of asset-based lending. This could instantly improve cash flow, allowing you to cover your outgoings during these turbulent times.

Alternatively, you may wish to consider placing the company in a formal insolvency process such as a Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA) if you would like to enter into formal negotiations with creditors, or administration if you need some breathing space to formulate a workable plan going forwards.

Understanding landlord and property management liquidation

If the financial issues caused by non-paying tenants or vacant properties, have taken your property business beyond the point of rescue, you may need to consider liquidation. This can be done through a director-initiated process known as a Creditors’ Voluntary Liquidation (CVL). All company assets will be sold for the benefit of creditors, with any remaining debt written off as part of the process. However, due to the assets likely to be involved when a landlord or property company encounters financial distress, liquidation may not be an option which is considered.

By taking the advice of a licensed insolvency practitioner, you will be able to clearly understand your position and the options which are available to help you not only weather the storm, but emerge as a stable and resilient position.
