IMPORTANT UPDATE: COVID-19

Further measures have been announced to protect companies and commercial tenants from aggressive rent collection by their landlords during the Coronavirus pandemic.

In a press release - the Government has said that:-

  • statutory demands and winding up petitions issued to commercial tenants will be temporarily voided where a company cannot pay their bills due to Coronavirus;
  • changes will be made so that landlords can only use Commercial Rent Arrears Recovery (CRAR) when 90 days’ rent is unpaid;
  • landlords and investors are asked to work collaboratively with high street businesses unable to pay their bills during the Covid-19 pandemic.
