Hi, welcome to Just Answer. I will help you with your question.
The landlord is bound by the CVA in respect of the arrears together with the other creditors.
He can, however, distrain and/or forfeit the lease (if the right exists in the lease) BUT he needs the Court's permission to do this.
So yes, you are right, he would have to go to Court to get ahead of anybody else.
The supervisor of the arrangement will need to be informed of the debt amount and the invoiced sum. It is up to the supervisor what to do with this by reference to the scheme rules as approved by the creditors.
So, they cannot repossess without apply to the Court. How long that takes depends, but I would imagine it would probably take 2 months at least to get a Court hearing, but it depends on the local Court.
I hope this answers your question. If you need further information, either now or later, just let me know and I'll gladly help out.
