Protection from Eviction for Commercial Tenants

Who is eligible?

All commercial tenants in England, Wales and Northern Ireland are eligible.

Commercial tenants who cannot pay their rent because of COVID-19 will be protected from eviction.

Although these measures will mean that no business will automatically forfeit their lease and be forced out of their premises if they miss a payment up until 30 June, we expect you to continue to make payments towards your rent and any arrears you may have. This is not a rental holiday. All commercial tenants will still be liable for the rent.

There is the option for the government to extend this period if needed.
