Discounts for NLA Members



If you are looking to recover any losses in rent from past or present tenants, our NLA Rent Recovery service can assist you.

There are a few different methods for recovering rent owed when regular rent recovery methods were ineffective.

These methods include:

  • Third Party Debt
    • Debt collection performed by someone outside of the initial transaction or contract
  • 7 Day Demand
    • A letter drafted by a lawyer demanding payment within the fixed period of seven days
  • Statutory Demand
    • As the creditor, you can make this demand without involving a lawyer, giving your tenant 21 days to either pay their rent arrears or reach an agreement to pay. If your tenant fails to respond within the stated period, you are entitled to apply for your tenant's bankruptcy.
  • Ground Rent
    • Referring to recovery of Ground Rent using a rent recovery collection service
