31 March 2021

The Government has announced the measures in place to protect commercial tenants from eviction and forms of insolvency and debt recovery are extended to 30 June 2021.

This is supported by the Code of Conduct published by the Government last year, setting out best practice for these negotiations.

We will shortly be launching a Call for Evidence on commercial rents to help monitor the overall progress of negotiations between tenants and landlords.
