Finance Minister Conor Murphy has extended an emergency provision for tenants by a further three months in order to protect businesses at this difficult time.

The move, which extends the special provisions of the Coronavirus Act 2020, means business tenants here are now protected from the threat of eviction because of non-payment of rent until 31 December 2020.

Minister Murphy explained: “Covid-19 continues to have a massive impact on our economy and I want to do all I can to support businesses through to recovery. This emergency provision was in place until the end of September; however, given the continued challenges arising from the pandemic I am extending again the emergency provision for a further three months.

“I recognise the pressure on landlords too, and so I would again continue to encourage landlords and tenants to work together – tenants should continue to meet their legal obligations and pay their rent in full if they can. However, where this is not possible landlords will I hope show leniency to those businesses in difficulty at this time.”
