The following has been released by the Government:


Protection from eviction for commercial tenants

Commercial tenants who cannot pay their rent because of COVID-19 will be protected from eviction. These measures will mean no business will automatically forfeit their lease and be forced out of their premises if they miss a payment up until 30 June. There is also the option for the government to extend this period if needed.


This is not a rental holiday, and all commercial tenants will still be liable for the rent. All commercial tenants in England, Wales and Northern Ireland are eligible.
