Update – Protection for Non-Payment of Business Rent


Protection from forfeiture for non-payment of rent for business tenancies extended to 30 September 2020

On 17 June 2020, Regulations were introduced which extended the protections from forfeiture, ending a tenancy, for non-payment of rent for business tenancies in England and Wales to 30 September 2020.

The halt was introduced in March, as reported in my earlier article https://www.kerseys.co.uk/emergency-legislation-commercial-tenancies/

Whilst actions landlords can take before 30 September 2020 are restricted there are still options for landlords so they should seek legal advice if they are experiencing difficulties with commercial tenants.
