Recent research has suggested that only 11 per-cent of retailers have paid their rent on time. Before the pandemic landlords received approximately 30 per-cent of their rent on time.
With the moratorium on commercial tenant evictions still in place it seems that many retailers are wanting to retain any working capital they can to support their businesses as the government support schemes are unwound. There are widespread regional variations with those tenants who are paying on time with tenants in London struggling the most. Only 10 per-cent of tenants in London had paid their rent on time whereas in Yorkshire and the Humber 29 per-cent of tenants had paid their rent on time.
