On 7 April 2020, the Australian government announced a Mandatory Code of Conduct to be followed by landlords and tenants of commercial leases.
The purpose of the Code is to bring landlords and tenants together and work out a solution in good faith to get through the crisis. There are specific items in the Code which require each party to take a share of the burden and negotiate a fair outcome.
In short, tenants who are economically affected by the COVID-19 pandemic should be able to point to the Code to get the landlord to provide some form of relief. It also bans the landlord for terminating the lease or drawing on the tenant’s security.
In return, it requires the tenant to act in good faith and honour the lease.
This fixed-fee package starts at $500 + GST.
