The Australian Government has introduced a mandatory Code of Conduct for landlords and tenants, in an endeavour to assist and encourage negotiation of varied lease terms to give each party a better chance of surviving the effects of the measures to combat the COVID-19 crisis, which have caused significant reduction in trade for many businesses.
There are certain guidelines and principles relevant to these negotiations conducted under the Code and you will find further information in our article below.

pragmatic advice on your rights and the effect the Code has on you as a landlord or a tenant
