Support for commercial tenancies

Posted 20 April 2020 

Regulations have been passed to assist commercial tenancies affected by COVID-19. If a lessee has suffered financial hardship as a result of COVID-19, a lessor cannot take action on the grounds of a breach of the lease for a prescribed period.  For more information read “Essential Information for Lessees and Lessors dealing with COVID-19” on the Small Business Commissioner’s website.  View the COVID-19 Emergency Response (Commercial Leases) Regulations 2020.
