WATCH: Rent in the time of Covid: Practical considerations for turbulent times

Thursday 20 May 2021
9.30am - 10.30am
Online, Zoom
1.0 CPD

Join four Wilberforce property practitioners in two short dialogues focussing on topical issues concerning rent in 1954 Act renewals. The discussions focus particularly on what various issues the volatility in the markets occasioned by the events of the last year will present to practitioners.

Jonathan Davey QC and Ben Faulkner discuss:

  • Turnover rents: points to keep in mind; court’s jurisdiction
  • Pandemic clauses: will they affect rent?
  • Vacancies on the High Street: how they should be factored in

James McCreath and Francesca Mitchell discuss:

  • Interim rent in volatile markets
  • Manoeuvres for tactical advantage
  • The gambling tenant and the special case of an order to revoke a new tenancy
