Property Patter: the new arbitration system for covid rent arrears

The Commercial Rent (Coronavirus) Act received Royal Assent on 24 March 2022.

But how will the process work and how can landlords and tenants prepare for it? Natalie Deuchar, Hope Wilson and Emma Humphreys explore the new scheme.

Please note: This podcast was recorded shortly before the Act received Royal Assent. No significant details were changed, but there is now a list of approved arbitrators available here.
