Reply To: Any ideas if the government will provide financial support/assistance to tenants to assist them with meeting rental/opex payments during the period of the shutdown?  Our landlorad has not given us any breaks at all and is pushing to increase rents and the only thing the landlord has said is that in the event of non-payment should government give support the entirety of that support will need to transferred to them.  Just want to hear from anyone about what assistance tenants can take advantage of.

There has been no commitment from the government to assist with commercial rents. There is plenty of advice around and some good articles in the news, e.g. this one:


My advice: talk to your lawyer, talk to your landlord, and don’t agree to anything.

Stay safe.
