Webinar: Does the tenant have to pay?

19 October 2020

Landlord and tenant proceedings have been halted for more than 6 months. In the interim, some tenants will have been unable to pay rent as well as unable to occupy business premises.  There will have been some concessions informally agreed in haste during lockdown.  With restrictions on legal proceedings due to be lifted from 1 January 2021, the fall-out from these changes and agreements will become a pressing issue.

In this webinar, David Brounger, Miriam Shalom and Emma Godfrey of the Field Court Property Team discuss some of the practicalities for commercial landlords. They will focus particularly on:

  • Frustration of leases
  • Rent concessions
  • s. 82 of the Coronavirus Act 2020 and its impact on claims based on non-payment of rent.
