National Cabinet mandatory code of conduct – SME commercial leasing principles during COVID-19

The federal government has released information on its code of conduct for lease and rent matters.

The purpose of the Code of Conduct is to impose a set of good faith leasing principles for application to commercial tenancies, including retail, between owners/operators/other landlords and tenants, where the tenant is an eligible business for the purpose of the Commonwealth Government’s JobKeeper program.

The benefits to Newsagents from the code of conduct announced by the National Cabinet on Tuesday are based on the principle of proportionality.
