C0620(3)             Item 2         Rent Relief for Tenants - Covid 19 Coronavirus

Motion: (Da Cruz/Steer)

 

THAT Council:

 

1.    Adopt the National Cabinet Mandatory Code of Conduct – SME Commercial Leasing Principles During COVID-19 (Code);

 

2.    Adopt the subsequent Retail and Other Commercial Leases Covid-19 Regulation 2020 (Regulation) which applies to all retail and commercial leases; and

 

 

3.    Adopt the subsequent Residential Tenancies Amendment (COVID-19) Regulation 2020 which applies to all residential leases; and

 

4.    Voluntarily apply the Code and subsequent Regulations to retrospectively commence on 23 March 2020; and

 

5.    Voluntarily apply the Code and subsequent Regulations to all Inner West Council tenancies including Licences and any other formal rights to occupy land which are not ordinarily covered by the Code and Regulations;

 

6.    Delegate authority to the CEO (and Staff) to negotiate and finalise the terms for the appropriate rent relief with Inner West Council tenants;

 

7.    Bring back a report to Council on the application of these regulations and codes;

 

8.    Receive a confidential report to the next Council meeting regarding the Council commercial tenancy at Yeo Park, Ashfield;

 

9.    Receive a report in 1 month regarding the amount of rent of commercial tenants that has been deferred and likelihood and fairness of recovery, noting this information may need to be reported confidentially. This report includes assessment of:

 

a)    Waiver of three months’ rent (March/Apr/May) for all affected businesses tenanted in council buildings. The costs of operating in this time skyrocketed due to all the variations of conditions and restrictions hence the request for waiver.

 

b)    Adopt the National Cabinet Mandatory Code of Conduct – SME Commercial Leasing Principles During COVID-19 (Code) for rental negotiations post May to October per the stipulations outlined in the council recommendation, however we request that an independent business advisor or mediator is assigned to impartially assess how best to compare the revenue figures and impact. 

 

c)    That an agreement can be made in good faith as to the rental amount for the total of the 5 month period (Jun-Oct) rather than month by month. This will allow not only the business, but the council to have visibility on rental rather than letting debt mount up and also reduce the paperwork for both parties. Using the code as a guide, and a mediator, we can agree on what the 5 months rent will look like (subject to no second outbreak). We simply need to know where we stand, rather than having to produce a report each month.

 

d)    A review of agreed CPI increases - our lease stipulates a 4% CPI increase which just took effect in Jan. Given the market conditions, we propose this CPI increase be reviewed or waivered.  

 

e)    Council to support the recovery by investing in suggested local infrastructure projects in and around the business that will enhance both the business and the community. For example, in our case, park benches installed in the park and an additional sheltered/shaded area. 

 

10.  Write to local Tenants Advice and Advocacy Services (Marrickville and Redfern) thanking them for their work for tenants in our LGA and inviting discussion regarding how Council can support their work during COVID e.g. including legal and referral information in Council communications.
