The Covid-19 pandemic has affected commercial property owners, occupiers and investors in many different ways. In this webinar Trowers' property litigation team will be highlighting the practical lessons arising from recent commercial landlord and tenant cases that turned on pandemic-related issues.

Topics to be covered include:

  •  Covid-related arrears claims – what the first two High Court decisions on Covid-related defences to commercial rent arrears claims have told us.
  • Rent and interim rent in 1954 Act lease renewals – how the recent case of WH Smith Retail Holdings Limited v Commerz Real Investmentgesellshaft MBH dealt with a number of valuation issues on an unopposed lease renewal for a retailer impacted by the pandemic
  • Restructuring – the latest developments surrounding tenant restructuring and its impact on landlords, including an update on the landlords' opposition to the Virgin Active plan to use the new cross-class cram-down provisions to reduce its rental payments
  • Break notices – an overview of Wigan Borough Council v Scullindale Global Ltd regarding the validity of a landlord's break notice where a developer failed to complete a development on time
