CVAs: How they work and how to protect your interests - London, Tuesday 27 November 2018

Company Voluntary Arrangements (CVAs) have been hitting the headlines throughout 2018.

A combination of weak consumer spending, increased competition and the onslaught of e-commerce has meant that businesses in the retail and leisure sectors have been using CVAs to delay – and often reduce – their payments to creditors. CVAs are seen as a healthier alternative to administration but it is often the landlords who pay the price.

Royds Withy King have teamed up with Stephen Katz of David Rubin & Partners and Simon Chaplin of Christie & Co to deliver a seminar which will explore the ins and outs of CVAs and how you can protect your valuable income-producing asset. The seminar will answer questions such as:

•    How do CVAs work?
•    Does a CVA help or just put off the inevitable?
•    What should landlords and tenants watch out for in a CVA?
•    What is the impact of a CVA on the landlord?
•    When should you review a CVA?
•    What are the landlord’s rights under a CVA? Restrictions on recovery of rent arrears, and rights to challenge the CVA.
•    How can landlords pursue former tenants and guarantors?

We will also look at recent cases and examples, including landlords fighting back.

Who should attend

This seminar will be relevant and useful for commercial landlords, commercial tenants and industry professionals.
