Pilot Project

Why not get started with
a 3-month trial pilot project.

We are a trusted partner for large accommodation providers and landlords across the UK. This includes student accommodation, the Build to Rent sector and property development portfolios.

When the time comes to deal with outstanding rent, evictions or other tenancy breaches, Greenhalgh Kerr’s team can get the result you want. We will work alongside your team to communicate clearly with tenants, and resolve all issues quickly and ethically in the most cost effective way.

Whether you require a notice, possession & eviction, rent arrears/service charge debt recovery or settlement of a dispute, we tailor our service to your specific circumstances.

We are completely transparent with legal costs. A lot of the work is covered by fixed fees.

We are confident in our work and we know that recoveries is a key part of a lender or creditor’s business

We are confident in our work and we know that recoveries is a key part of a lender or creditor’s business. We have designed our pilot projects to give lenders and creditors the comfort and confidence in our service before formally and fully switching recoveries providers. This time also allows new clients to benchmark our service levers and results against existing providers and others.

How it works

01

You choose 10 recoveries cases

You choose 10 recoveries cases to get us started. We’ll deliver our usual onboarding protocol where we’ll get to know you and your systems, culture, methods, preferences, and requirements.

02

We get started

We assess each case by setting a strategy then grading and reporting on the case in terms of prospects and timescales and cost. We make immediate contact with debtors, and pursue a recovery in our tried and tested ways.

03

We review

We deliver ongoing, structured, tailored reports as per your needs and carry out a full 3-month review on these 20 cases. There we’ll discuss how we have worked together, patterns we have seen in your borrowers, your systems, your documents, your pre-legal conduct, outcomes, highs and lows, legal costs (and costs borne by debtors), and possible improvements in all of these.

04

No strings

We carry on working in this way until all cases have been concluded. You are then free to carry on your discussions with us or to use the experience and market intelligence gained by working with us in the future.

Lenders and creditors have nothing to lose, and everything to gain, by engaging with us on a pilot project.
