Sweeney Miller Litigation Solicitor Discusses Commercial Rent (Coronavirus) Act in Northern Insight Magazine

Litigation solicitor at Sweeney Miller Law, Charlie Lynn, has written an article featured in this month’s Northern Insight Magazine.

The article discusses the impact of the Commercial Rent (Coronavirus) Act on commercial tenants and landlords. The new Act affects rent payments that built up due to the forced closure of businesses by the Government during the Covid 19 lockdowns.

In the article, that can be found here, Charlie explains the background to the Act, the important distinctions between protected and unprotected tenancies, the new arbitration scheme, together with the costs implications and timescales. The article concludes that for both commercial landlords or tenants, given the timescales and how new and untested the process is, it is important to consider getting specialist legal advice.

If you are a commercial landlord or tenant that may be affected by the new rules, and wish to talk through the implications and explore the options, contact Charlie by email  or call 0345 900 5401.
