Grant News – January 2021
Commercial Tenancy Relief Scheme Extended
The Commercial Tenancy Relief Scheme has been extended until 28 March 2021. The Scheme was introduced to relieve financial hardship faced by tenants and landlords as a result of coronavirus (COVID-19).
Small business tenants seeking rent relief from 1 January 2021 to 28 March 2021 will need to apply to their landlord in writing, with evidence of their eligibility as soon as possible, as a landlord is only required to provide rent relief from the date of application.
For further information about the scheme and for free mediation services for commercial tenants and landlords please refer to the official website.
