Apart from supermarkets, most businesses cannot use their premises during lockdown and the ongoing rent cost is a major drain on cash when many businesses have no income. We have been checking leases for our clients to see if they may be entitled to a rent reduction. Even if there is nothing in your lease allowing that, some landlords are prepared to reduce the rent during lockdown. We are expert negotiators and are keen to help our landlords and tenants find a balance so that they can get back to business quickly once this lockdown is over.

The Hayman Lawyers team are set up in home offices and available to give you Lockdown advice on all your legal issues.
