The Welsh Government is extending measures to protect businesses affected by coronavirus from eviction during the summer, Minister for Economy, Transport and North Wales Ken Skates, has announced.Tug of War Business

The extension to the moratorium on commercial lease forfeitures comes as non-essential retail businesses began reopening in Wales last week. Although rent due should be paid whenever possible, this measure will ensure no business is forced out of its premises if it misses a payment in the next three months.

The measure was due to expire on June 30, but has now been extended to September 30, and will help support the economic recovery across Wales. It will prevent unreasonable evictions, help protect jobs and safeguard businesses which were trading before the pandemic.
