BPF Response to the Commercial Rents and Covid-19 Call for Evidence

What: We have submitted our response to the Call for Evidence on commercial rents in which the Government requests views on a series of options on the best way to withdraw or replace the moratorium on commercial lease evictions and the restrictions on the use of CRAR.

Our view: The moratoriums should be lifted in full at the end of June and an enhanced Code of Practice with adjudication by the courts should be the backstop where agreements cannot be reached.
