What’s happening for commercial and residential tenants
The Federal Government is asking landlords, tenants and financial institutions to find ways to keep businesses in business so they can start again once the impacts of COVID-19 subside.
For residential tenants, the Prime Minister said: “States and territories will be moving to put a moratorium on evictions of persons as a result of financial distress if they are unable to meet their commitments. And so there will be a moratorium on evictions for the next six months under those rental arrangements.”
This situation is changing. Keep updated at Coronavirus information and support for business.
