Hi there,

Commercial tenants who cannot pay their rent because of coronavirus will be protected from eviction till 20th Sept. Under the Coronavirus Act 2020, a landlord may not enforce a right of forfeiture for non-payment of rent in relation to a commercial tenancy between 26 March to 30 Sept 2020. under Sections 82 and 83 of the Coronavirus Act.

However there are no changes to the law regarding ending tenancies or rent reductions in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic, and until something mutually agreed between the tenant and the Landlord,

So any rent concession should be mutually agreed with the Landlord in writing.

If you have any follow-up question, please let me know
