Asset Management Business Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update
The Council is aware of the current economic conditions and the additional pressure being put on business by the Covid-19 pandemic. Accordingly, the Council, as your landlord, understands that its tenants may have difficulty in meeting their rent payments for the forthcoming quarter and potentially beyond.
The Council will grant a 3 month rent holiday from 25th March 2020, but noting that the rent for the March quarter will have to be paid by the end of December 2020 or the expiry of the lease, whichever is the earlier.
In addition, the Council will agree to a temporary change to payment terms and will accept monthly payments of rent rather than quarterly payments.
The Council will review this position when more is known about the likely duration of the economic impact of the pandemic.
If you feel that you will have difficulties in making your rent payment due on 25th March, please contact the Asset Management team to discuss your position at email@example.com.
Please note that this applies to the commercial tenants of the Council only; tenants of private landlords and whg tenants need to contact their own landlords directly.
