 Recorded Webinar: NSW’s COVID-19 Leasing Reforms: The Court’s Verdict Is In

UPDATE: Recording will be available from the 21st of October 2020

Landlords and tenants across the country are continuing to feel the effects of COVID-19 and serious questions surround the recent COVID-19 leasing reforms. The recent NSW Supreme Court decisions of Sneakerboy are the first opportunity across all States and Territories for a Court to apply COVID-19 related legislation. This session examines the key implications of the Sneakerboy decisions and how parties can achieve some certainty in an uncertain future. It covers:

  • Unpacking Sneakerboy Retail Pty Ltd trading as Sneakerboy v Georges Properties Pty Ltd (No 2) [2020] NSWSC and Sneakerboy Retail Pty Ltd trading as Sneakerboy v Georges Properties Pty Ltd [2020] NSWSC 996
  • What is the Covid-19 Pandemic period and how does it apply to April rent?
  • What is meant by "tenant's trade" under the code?
  • What is meant by ‘reasonable recovery period” under the code and is the door now open for six months more rent relief for SME tenants?
  • Is a landlord required to consider extending concessions beyond the prescribed period of the COVID leasing laws?
  • What happens when the COVID leasing laws are repealed?
    • What rights accrue on repeal?
    • What rights are voided?
  • What is the extent of the court’s powers following failed renegotiations?
  • Best practice guidance for renegotiations between the parties
