Save Our Pubs – Cancel Rent
The pub industry is fighting for it’s survival against Covid-19. CAMRA is calling on pub companies large and small to cancel rent for their tenants during the Covid-19 crisis.
What’s the issue?
In the pub industry, rent is charged to tenants based on the turnover of their pub. Pubs have been ordered to close during the Covid-19 lockdown, but many pub companies are still charging their tenants rent, or delaying collecting it rather than cancelling it. If a pub doesn’t have any turnover, it shouldn’t be paying any rent.
These pub companies and brewers have cancelled rent for their tenants – thank you!
