As of 25th December 2020 the minimum amount of net unpaid rent that must be outstanding before recovery action can takes place increases to 366 days.
Whilst that will be welcome news for businesses out their struggling to cover their rent payments it is of course a further blow to commercial landlords who potentially face a year of unpaid rent before action can be taken.
