    Commercial Leases in Exceptional Circumstances - With Richard Snape


    Date & Time: MONDAY 25th January 2021, 11.15am - 12.15pm

    Venue: Online (Using Zoom)

    Bring Your Own Coffee !

    This course aims to look at some of the major issues presented to the world of commercial leaseholds in the light of the Coronavirus Pandemic.  Topics covered include:


    • The Coronavirus Act 2020 and restrictions on forfeiture for non-payment of rent
    • Problems generally with forfeiture
    • Keep open clauses
    • Break clauses and problems with vacant possession
    • Possible arguments of frustration
    • Business rates
    • Business rates in relation to empty property
    • Insurance implications


    This update is aimed at commercial property solicitors and practitioners as well as developers.

    We will be using the Zoom software ( to host the session, with the intention being that everyone attending (if they choose) can see both Richard presenting as well as all the other attendees - so it will be the closest thing to attending a physical conference that we can achieve. 


    Zoom is the video conferencing platform used by a large number of law firms and from what we have experienced to date, appears reliable. 


    It will be an interactive session with Richard speaking for up to an hour followed by questions. Questions can also be asked during the session (which is what Richard prefers).


    Once you have registered for the event, you will be sent, separately by email, login details so that only those registered will be able to attend.


    For obvious reasons, we have a limited number of spaces which will be allocated in the order of registration.


    We hope you can join us - and look forward to seeing you on Monday 25th January 2021.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: XING is only used as a registration tool. If you are experiencing issues, please send an email to and we will include you on the registration list directly.
