The effect of a force majeure clause depends on the terms of the clause, which vary from one agreement to another. The main aspects of the clause are as follows: with the exception of the above, the parties are generally free to negotiate and agree on the terms of commercial lease agreements, including the deposit to be paid by the tenant and whether the rent to be paid is fixed or customizable during the term of the rental. Most commercial leases also give the tenant an option to extend before the end of the rental period. The authorized use of the premises and the purpose of the rental: it indicates the limits of the use of the premises by the owner of the company #39. The owner of the business is prevented from using the premises for non-consensual activities, for example, if the agreement is to use the premises to open a perfumery, the tenant is prohibited from carrying out another blacksmithing activity. It is a contract between two parties, a landowner and a business owner, in which the business owner can lease a commercial building for commercial or commercial purposes to the landowner. However, if no compromise can be reached, we recommend that tenants immediately seek legal advice on whether the current COVID 19 situation is a force majeure event within the framework and extent of the corresponding clause of the rental agreement or, alternatively, a frustrating event given the tenant`s circumstances. There may be other legal arguments that could be put forward based on the actual facts. A commercial lease / lease is a contract for the rental of premises for commercial or commercial purposes.

It is not suitable for private users. On 1 April 2020, the Government of Singapore announced that it was introducing a bill suspending enforcement measures taken by commercial landlords against tenants who are unable to pay their rent due to COVID-19 for up to six months. However, this is only a postponement and not a waiver of the tenant`s rental obligation. It appears that rents continue to be paid for these tenants and still have to be paid after the suspension period has expired. Commercial rental deposit: a predetermined amount of money that a tenant must pay to the lessor before managing one of its commercial premises. The main purpose of the deposit is to guarantee the lessor during the term of the rental if the commercial tenant does not pay the rent or the operating service or in case of material damage. Termination clause: termination of the contract. The method of termination should be agreed between the commercial tenant and the landlord.

In Singapore, large landlords often have a much stronger negotiating position when negotiating a lease with tenants. Therefore, many commercial leases do not contain force majeure clauses that would be useful for a tenant in a COVID 19 situation. As a general rule, the law recognizes contractual agreements (whether orally or in writing) under which the use and use of real estate is leased for a specified period of time. . . .
