Reasonable Compensation for loss or damage suffered by a Tenant


In some circumstances a Landlord of retail premises is liable to pay to the Tenant reasonable compensation for loss or damage.

When does a Landlord have to pay a retail tenant compensation?

These circumstances include (amongst others) that if the Landord

(or someone acting on the Landlord's behalf):

  • substantially inhibits the Tenant's access to the retail premises; or

  • unreasonably inhibits the flow of customers to the retail premises; or

  • unreasonably takes action that causes significant disruption to the Tenant's trading at the retail premises.

Others are listed in Section 54 of the Retail Leases Act 2003.
