WEBINAR: Covid-19, lease renewals and rent reviews – practice and tactics

CategoryWebinars Archive Author David Sawtell, Niraj Modha Date

In the spring of 2020, commercial tenants and landlords faced an array of unfamiliar challenges when it came to rent and other leasehold covenants. As leases come up for renewal or rent reviews are triggered, should tenants be looking to build flexibility into their leases in case of future lockdowns or social distancing measures? How far can landlords oppose changes to leasehold terms or the way in which the rent is paid?

This 30 minute webinar will examine these questions and consider what legal issues they raise.

  • What to look for in a rent review – evidence and tactics
  • The types of clauses landlords and tenants might wish to insert – rent, repair and stay open provisions
  • Does the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954 allow you to insert Covid-19 clauses in a lease renewal?
  • Turnover rent – issues and controversies
