Who can pay a reduced rent due to the coronavirus
In the context of the emergency measures to address the consequences of spreading risk of coronavirus COVID-19, an Act of Legislative Content was issued on 20 March 2020, which provides as follows:
Those who work in companies that have stopped operating temporarily due to the implementation of emergency measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus COVID-19 can pay a reduced rent by 40% for March and April 2020.
A basic precondition is that the employee had an employment contract with the company at the time of the application of these emergency measures and that the rent reduction should only relate to his first residence.
The provision for a 40% reduced rent also applies to those who rent a space for running their own business that has stopped operating temporarily due to the implementation of emergency measures.
