The idea of landlords offering rent holidays makes me chuckle quite a lot.
Not because it is a bad idea, it is a very sensible idea, but because the whole commercial rental sector can't identify any way of helping itself. It has essentially worked hard to stuff itself over the last decade with some pretty eye watering increases in costs of businesses that are not related to the underlying asset.
You go back 15-20 years it was a symbiotic relationship with landlords trying to keep business in business.
Now the whole thing revolves around showing a % rental yield so that the landlord can be borrowed up to the hilt. If the landlord relaxes the yield they default and are stuffed.
Actually the whole of commercial property thing will be stuffed after this. Shopping centres will be worthless as COVID will drive behavioural change to online shopping. Online will gain a huge level of capacity.
Office working will become even less important once everyone realises that they can work from home perfectly well and now with proper full fibre broadband being installed all over the country it is doable even for IT demanding jobs.
