As a Managing Agent, you know the difficulties when a lessee does not pay the rent and/or service charge due under the lease. The problem is made all the more difficult where the lessee has moved out of the property with a tenant in situ but has failed to provide you with a forwarding address. As with other forms of debt recovery, being able to recover outstanding sums is very difficult. In cases of service charges, there may be times where the money can only be recovered from the proceeds of a sale. If the property is not being sold, your client could have a long wait before receiving payment.
