Webinar on-demand: The new Commercial Rent (Coronavirus) Act 2022 – What does it mean for Landlords and Tenants?

In this on-demand webinar, we consider the impact of the new legislation on landlords, tenants and other parties that have interests in leasehold property

03 May 2022

Burges Salmon’s Real Estate Disputes team provide an update on this new legislation, which introduces a mandatory arbitration scheme in relation to rent arrears that have arisen during the pandemic.

In this on-demand webinar, James Sutherland and Michael Duncan look at the key provisions of the Act and the practicalities of the arbitration scheme, the factors arbitrators will take into account when granting tenants relief, and the continued restrictions on the ability of landlords to enforce pandemic-related rent arrears. Topics covered include:

  • Overview of the Act
  • What are the new moratoriums on enforcement action
  • How will the arbitration process work
  • What will the arbitrators be assessing
  • Potential pitfalls for the unwary
