COVID-19 National Cabinet Mandatory Code of Conduct (Commercial and Retail Leases) - Bulletin 1

We all know, the recent spread of COVID-19 in Australia has brought unprecedented and complex challenges to commercial and retail Landlords. This rapidly evolving crisis has caused considerable stress to Landlords, particularly with regards to corresponding with and responding to tenants in financial hardship due to the crisis, as well as dealing with their own financial considerations.

Accordingly, we have prepared this bulletin comparing Landlords’ leasing obligations before the crisis with them under the National Cabinet Mandatory Code of Conduct (“the Code”) published on 7 April 2020. This information is not to be taken as legal advice. As clarification evolves, we will issue further bulletins.
