This call for evidence will support the government’s decision making on the best way to withdraw or replace these measures while preserving tenant businesses and the millions of jobs that they support. It will review measures on commercial lease evictions established by section 82 of the Coronavirus Act 2020.
If there is evidence that productive discussions between landlords and tenants are not taking place, and that this represents a substantial and ongoing threat to jobs and livelihoods, the government will not hesitate to intervene further.
This consultation closes at 11:45pm on 4 May 2021. For more on the call of evidence, and the consultation link, click here.
