… the tenant of business premises has been required to close it temporarily because of the COVID-19 measures imposed by the authorities
… the landlord of business premises has tenants who have got into payment difficulties for the rent due to the closure of the business
… the landlord and the tenant of business premises have agreed on a partial remission of the rent and wish to record their agreements in writing
Under this agreement, the landlord and the tenant of a commercial property agree on the partial emission of rent payments.
Effective March 17, 2020, authorities have ordered public-health measures to contain the spread of the COVID-19 virus, such as social distancing, and most notably the closure of nearly all shops.
Most businesses had to close and have got into payment difficulties for the rent. Although the Federal Parliament has instructed the Federal Council to submit a bill on a “Commercial Rental Act Covid-19”, it is uncertain whether and when a legal solution for commercial rental will be adopted. It therefore makes sense to create legal certainty with this agreement.
