The lease agreement of a car sales and repair company expired during Phase 1. The tenant`s employees worked on site during Phase 1 to operate his office (on the same land), although the tenant did not resume the sale or repair of cars during this period. The tenant operated his business on the premises during this period, as the operation of the office is an activity for the operation of the business. The lease of a warehouse expired during the period of rupture of the circuit. The warehouse was used exclusively to store frozen food. Even if the tenant has not been able to access the warehouse during a period of operation (for example. B due to circuit breaker restrictions), it is considered that the tenant has operated its activities on the site. This is due to the fact that the storage of frozen food in the warehouse is an activity oriented towards the operation of the tenant`s activity. This means that no physical meeting is required to sign the agreement, all you need are the digitally signed documents to validate the authenticity of the contract.

You should engage in negotiations with your landlord in order to develop a mutually acceptable agreement. We encourage landlords and tenants to be reasonable and find a mutually acceptable solution to the contractual problems caused by COVID-19. If the parties are unable to agree on such issues after the negotiations, the parties should consider other dispute resolution mechanisms, such as mediation, arbitration or litigation. The lease of a clothing store expired during the Circuit Breaker. The tenant was unable to relocate his premises and was unable to provide the empty goods of the premises. However, some of its employees returned to the premises to clean and disinfect the premises before reopening after the Circuit Breaker. It is not considered that the tenant has operated his activity on the site during a certain period of operation, since these are not activities for the operation of the tenant`s activity. The lease agreement for a head office expired during the Circuit Breaker. During the period of detention, the tenant, who usually employs 500 people on site, obtained the necessary administrative exemptions, so that 10 of his main collaborators returned to the office daily. These important collaborators were employed to receive and send documents for commercial purposes. It is considered that the tenant has operated his business on the site, since the receipt and sending of documents for the operation of the tenant`s business has gone. The rental agreement for a food and beverage restaurant expired during the circuit breaker period.

During the circuit breaker period, the tenant kept canned goods and drinks in bottles on the site. The tenant did not sell food or beverages during this period. Since the storage of canned goods and beverages in bottles is not an activity for the operation of the business, the tenant did not operate his activity on the site during this period. If in doubt, we advise you to call your agent or potential tenant to clarify all the details before signing on the polka dot line. Since you can`t meet in person, it`s important to be thorough during the application process. In order to ensure that landlords are treated fairly and are not out of pocket for the service, maintenance and ancillary costs they continue to bear during the holding period, prescribed rates generally require tenants to pay these fees during the holding period, if such charges were provided for in the contract before the contract expires. . . .
