commercial repossession services 

Strikes Collection Services offer competitively priced professional, commercial repossession services when all other attempts to resolve rent arrears have proven unsuccessful. Our experienced and certificated enforcement agents are located across the country in order to serve clients in England and Wales.

Making the decision to forfeit a commercial lease can be a stressful time, this can be aided by using a dedicated repossession company. Once certificated enforcement agents will conduct the repossession, ensuring that immediate verbal confirmation of success is given followed by a written report within 24 hours including a detailed inventory, meter readings, and photos

Strikes CS can then follow through on the repossession procedure with our debt collection services; we’ll take immediate action to recover the related debt, ensuring a smooth transition of services and faster resolution. Once Forfeiture of Lease has occurred, the tenant may call and offer the full amount of rent arrears outstanding, if this is the case, Relief from Forfeiture can occur. However, the tenant either needs to apply to the court for Relief from Forfeiture in which case the original lease can continue or a new lease would need to be granted and signed. Failure of this process, may result in the landlord / agent giving the tenant the benefit of protection under the 1954 Act. So if a tenant has failed to make their rent payments and you need to reclaim your premises in order to minimise your losses, call us for a FREE quote on 01133 229555.

Once again I have to write to congratulate you on the swiftness of your services.

I put the abandoned vehicle legal sign that you gave me on an old type Audi which had been just left on our land, and it was quite interesting having several people watching me doing it, but no one came forward to ask me what I was doing. Obviously the word got around and the vehicle was removed within 48 hours. This has saved me having to pay to get it removed and recycled, so a big thank you to strikes B2B Debt Collection agency

Ann Rumsby, Dencora

Just want to say thank you to Strikes Collection Services for your help with our unwanted visitors, it was much appreciated.

Zoe Schager, Senior Customer Service Representative

I would just like to say a massive thank you to you and your staff for removing the unwanted travellers from our car park in Peterborough.

To have them moved on without them even staying a night is absolutely great and our tenants on the business park are very grateful. If I had the same service through the courts this would have taken three weeks, and I am sure it would have cost us at least double, especially with the clear up afterwards.

Ann Rumsby, Dencora

I will certainly keep you in mind for future work as was thoroughly impressed with your service

Jacqueline, Associate, LLP

I have known and worked in conjunction with Strikes for sometime now. Chris Bane and his team are reliable and always on hand to assist whenever that may be.

I would not hesitate in recommending Strikes services.

Peter Harling, Insolvency, Litigation, Debt Recovery and Company Restoration solicitor at Chadwick Lawrence LLP Solicitors, West Yorkshire

This is the first time we have used a debt collection agency.

I would have no hesitation in using Strikes Collection Services again and recommending them to others.

I had been chasing the outstanding debt myself for almost six months but Chris managed to reclaim the outstanding monies within a matter of days. Chris was very professional and took away all the stress. I only wish I had contacted Strikes earlier!

Katie, Credit Control Manager, Manchester Recruitment Agency

We, as a company, have used Chris for a number of year. Always on hand to advise us and very professional in dealing with our lessees.

Billy Wilson, Senior Credit Controller, Heineken UK

Always can be counted on for a fast, efficient and reliable service.

Clare, Solicitor, Real Estate Dispute Resolution

We instructed Chris Bane, of Strikes Bailiffs, to evict some travellers from our car park at the John Smith’s Stadium here in Huddersfield. This was done in a very professional manner and to a time scale that meant there was no disruption to our business, tenants or customers. We would certainly have no hesitation in recommending Chris Bane, of Strikes Bailiffs to anyone needing the services of a Bailiff.

Philip. J .Armitage MBIFM, Operations Manager, Kirklees Stadium Development Limited, The John Smith’s Stadium

I have found Strikes CS to be efficient, professional and most importantly effective when managing our ledger/clients.

Strikes CS have provided a service that we will most certainly be using again and I feel confident recommending to other businesses without reservation. The results speak for themselves! Thank you for your continuing support over the last 12 months.
