What is the law regulation, are they able to distress levy the machinery and subcontractors tools on that stage. What is going to happen if we break into the units and remove whatever is owned by us and subcontractors?
Ifyou break into the unit, it is criminal damage and you are liable to bearrested.
Areyou saying that these goods and the machinery and tools left in the unit do notbelong to the company that rents the unit? Do you have proof that they areowned by other people?
Haveyou now paid the rent up to date?
Willthe landlord negotiate?
I'm the one and only company Director. I have a couple of tools of trade private ( which probably cannot be levy ) and joinery machinery taken as a private person under the purchase lease agreement ( in my private name ).
Yes subcontractors have invoices for their tools and also they are stored in designated joinery bench for each subcontractor.
No we haven't paid rent. We propose agreement on friday that we can pay £6k after two weeks and remaining £10k end of february. November, December and January was a dead season and all new confirmed projects are coming from beginning of february. No reply since friday with regards XXXXX XXXXX from management company.
We are afraid about 5 day period before they can sell goods in unit ( many belong to Clients, friends and subcontractors ).
Is this is moving to another expert from your website who can deal with this matter?
The question is now open to all experts and one with the necessary expertise will pick it up

Can the landlord/management agent/bailiff keep private purchase hire equipment in the unit ( belongs to lease company taken under private name ) locked against our will and also can he keep private and subcontractor goods. If yes how long and how we can fight with that?
14 days is incorrect. after 5 days he can begin to put items on auction or sale them directly. I can write a request to extend it by 15 days but it's only granted by landlord so he don't have to wait. tomorrow 5 days period is passing.
