GP Practice Owners: Understanding a pathology rental reduction request

Speciality Classification
General Practice ( GP ) / Family Medicine

On-demand recorded 23 Apr 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic has presented many challenges for general practices including changes to service provision. The consequential decrease in the volume of pathology tests being ordered has resulted in numerous pathology tenants demanding a substantial reduction in rent.

This webinar provides practice owners with information that will enable you to make an informed decision regarding your current lease. Industry experts will provide information on your rights and obligations as a landlord, how the Code of Conduct for commercial tenancies may assist, how to project your service provision requirements for the upcoming months and strategies for contract discussion and negotiations. 

This webinar was recorded on Thursday 23 April 2020. As information on COVID-19 changes daily, please note that some of the advice in this webinar may no longer be current by the time of viewing.
