Commercial tenants protected from rent arrears
Released 23 March 2020
The government has announced that commercial tenants who cannot pay their rent because of coronavirus will be protected from eviction.
Measures, included in the emergency Coronavirus Bill currently going through Parliament, will mean no business will be forced out of their premises if they miss a payment in the next three months.
