Reply To: Hi do you know if there is any assistance for lease rates etc whilst on lockdown 

Hi there – I am not aware of any relief on Council Rates being paid right now, and the lease obligations depend on what your lease says plus what the approach is of your landlord. Many tenants have agreed a compromise from paying no rent for the term of lock-down to 20% or 50% of the monthly rental. Talk to your landlord. There are a few other categories like utilities where the company’s are saying ‘approach us’ and we can support you.
