new measures to protect commercial tenants from landlord eviction
The Government has announced extra protection for businesses in rented properties:
Commercial tenants who cannot pay their rent because of coronavirus will be protected from eviction;
No business will be forced out of their premises if they miss a payment in the next three months.
As commercial tenants will still be liable for the rent after this period, the Government is also actively monitoring the impact on commercial landlords’ cash flow and continues to be in dialogue with them.
