-Could you explain your situation a little more?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
We are a punch taverns tanant.

They are about to go into administration recievership.

We paid a supposedly secure deposit, which it now transpires that this money has been put into general punch funds.

Therefore should they go into AR we would lose our deposits.

Since we joined punch, their credit rating is below half what is was, and they are now an advised risk (experian).

Part of our contract is to buy beer with them, however that means extending them further credit as we would have to pay in advance for a delivery.

I tried to withold rental payments until suchmtime my deposit money is covered and offered to pay COD for all goods, however they have refused this and sent a bailiff with no notice (within 24 hours) who produced paperwork which allowed for no resolve and a distress of goods which would effectively stop me from trading.

I have several questions around these points, please may i ask are you familiar with tenancy law AND licensing law?

I can help with the tenancy side but not the licensing side.
