TENANT INSOLVENCY: IMPACT ON LEASE REMEDIES
Coronavirus, the government’s lockdown of many businesses and social distancing – all are having a huge and detrimental effect on the solvency of commercial tenants. What remedies and rights does a landlord have especially in light of recent government ‘pandemic’ legislation?
- Statutory demands and winding up – the proposed Corporate Insolvency and Governance Bill
- When the rent can be unilaterally reduced, how and why: Discovery v Debenhams
- The Coronavirus Act 2020, a new moratorium and proposed changes to statutory demands and winding up orders – where do they leave the landlord?
- Can you still rely on the guarantor? And who else must pay rent?
