i own a small business which was in lockdown for over 7 weeks, due to the financial hardship of this closure i approached the landlord for an early termination of my commercial lease and made an offer, i am waiting for a reply. Over the lockdown i have only paid a small portion of the lease and outgoings, as per my lease agreement.I have tried to negotiate the lease and bills payment (fair proportion) with the landlord, their reply was to pay in full. I noticed 4 days before level 2 came about the landlord had placed the premises up “For lease” and put signage up and was advertising with an agent. To date i have had no written or verbal notice. Has the landlord broke the terms of the lease agreement, and is this legal.
