Court Orders 53% Rent Reduction on two Grafton Street Properties

As the economy has declined and as the retail and services industries in particular suffer, debate continues on the issue of commercial rent reviews.

It had been hoped that the restriction on upwards only rent reviews introduced in February 2010 by Section 132 of The Land & Conveyancing Law Reform Act 2009 would resolve the issue. However this restriction only applies to leases created after 28 February 2010 and in practice landlords appear reluctant to agree to anything other than upwards only rent review clauses in new leases in the hope that this restriction will be reversed in the future.
