I have a hotel tenant having reduced accommodation during shutdowns in Victoria. The hotel gets a commission based on the fixed lease it pays to me. During good times in the last two decades it has expanded its holding in the hotel. In the confusion of the shutdowns, it has offered 50% reduction in lease and requests for waiver of the shortfall. I have offered deferral instead. The lease stipulates that the lease can be ended upon a notice of any rental arrears. The fixed period lease can then be ended and a monthly tenancy commences. I would prefer this outcome as the property can be sold for owner occupier at a much higher price than as an investment property. The fixed lease still has a number of years to go. I am considering requesting for more consensus among owners about our options as the arrears are mounting up large if it were to stretch to September. I doubt that the hotel tenant is committed to making up for the shortfall for all owners. Is there a sure fire way of moving the tenants to monthly tenancy that is supported by established law? The hotel tenant is known as a serial litigious participant!
