The introduction of a new procedure to replace the ancient common law process of “distress for rent” – Commercial Rent Arrears Recovery (“CRAR”) - is almost upon us. Part 3 of the Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement Act 2007, languishing on the statute books for some time, will be brought into force on 6 April 2014.
