At the forefront of everybody's minds as we launched into 2021 is the impact the COVID-19 outbreak will continue to have on the economy and, for landlords, on commercial leases.
Take a look at our recent commentaries on case law and legal considerations in relation to commercial leases.
The first in our updates looks at COVID-19 and commercial leases, including remedies for non-payment of rent, business rates, keep open clauses and more. It also touches on other recent findings in commercial leases.
Our second update looks at misrepresentation, break clauses and empty properties, service charge liabilities, EWS1 and external cladding and more.
Every month in 2021, we will be hosting legal update webinars for property professionals to examine real estate legal issues just like these. If you'd like to be invited to future events, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
