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.
Please note: We have received a large number of applications for grants and are processing them as quickly as we can. We will contact you very soon about your application.
