As we all understand, every tenant situation is different, but for non-essential retail, the income tap has been turned off for the foreseeable future. Feedback so far is mixed:
– some seem to be getting 50% rent reductions agreed
– a few have a rent-free period based on long-standing relationships and tenure.

By and large, the majority we have talked to (both landlords and tenants) are waiting to hear more from the government. I’ve heard some retailers saying their landlords are trying to distance themselves from the issue and others have been difficult to contact.
