Covid-19 Rent Relief

On Tuesday the 7th of April 2020, the Morrison Government announced a mandated Commercial Tenancy Code which outlines the formula for landlords and tenants to negotiate reduced commercial rent terms as a result of Covid-19. Whilst clear in principle, the code requires industry expertise to ensure commercial tenants receive the maximum levels of rent reduction over the appropriate time period of its Lease.

The Commercial Tenancy Code has created ‘good faith’ principles to guide discussions between commercial landlords and tenants who have been drastically impacted by the COVID-19 Pandemic. As such, Landlords are to provide their tenants with a rent reduction proportionate to their loss in revenue. To qualify, tenants must have an annual turnover of less than $50 million and be JobKeeper participants.
