COVID-19: Retail and Commercial Leasing Matrix

Date: 23 June 2020

The COVID-19 Retail and Commercial Leasing Matrix (Matrix) provides landlords and tenants with an overview of the COVID-19 response measures which have been enacted in each Australian State and Territory following the release of the National Cabinet's Mandatory Code of Conduct: SME Commercial Leasing Principles During COVID-19 (Code) on 7 April 2020.

The Code embodied a set of good faith leasing principles to apply to certain commercial tenancies experiencing financial stress or hardship because of the COVID-19 pandemic. You can read more about the Code here.

The Matrix is current as at 22 June 2020. We will continue to update this document if regulations change. You can read detailed summaries of regulations passed in various jurisdictions here.
