COVID-19 update: Protections from forfeiture for non-payment of rent


In October, our blog explained how commercial tenants should act without delay when applying for relief from forfeiture from non-payment of rent.

A further update to this is that business tenants affected by COVID-19 will continue to benefit, until 31 March 2021, from:

  • Protection from forfeiture for non-payment of rent. This will bring the length of time business tenants have been given support from the threat of eviction to one year.
  • Restrictions on landlords recovering unpaid rent by the exercise of commercial rent arrears recovery.
