From ground rent arrears instruction to collection in under a week

The Brady Solicitors team got a new client relationship off to a flying start by collecting in ground rent arrears within 5 working days of being instructed by an asset management client.

The client needed a new legal partner to take swift action on its outstanding ground rent arrears. The client also needed its legal provider to take a sophisticated and tailored approach that would avoid the need for the usual route of possession, with brand and reputation management being of prime importance.

Colin Hussey, Head of Business Development, took the brief from the client and then worked closely with Vin Chauhan and Lee Stevens in Brady Solicitors’ IT team to create a bespoke workflow to ensure that Bradys could swiftly collect the ground rent arrears in line with the client’s very specific requirements.

Bradys’ Head of IT Vin Chauhan explains:

‘Our case management system can, fortunately, be adapted very quickly if you have the in-house expertise to handle it.

‘In this instance, we were able to create a new arrears collection process for this client, which ensures that the ground rent arrears recovery process works exactly as they would wish. The new process was written within 24 hours and then we moved quickly on to training the arrears recovery team to ensure they could use it effectively.

‘We will also be delivering bespoke reports so that the client can track the speed and success with which our service charge team is collecting the arrears. It’s rewarding to see how quickly we’ve been able to make a difference to this new client.’

Colin adds:

‘This client success story really highlights how Brady Solicitors can act as an extension to your credit control team. By understanding your brand and your relationships with both leaseholders and freeholders, we can develop bespoke systems and reports that add value to your organisation and ensure you maintain the revenue from your ground rent assets.’
