Macron in France started suspending all rent payment as France shuts down, and today here in Australia the media started reporting politicians are pleading with landlords to be flexible and don't evict. while I agree with this in principle, there are no details on how this is done in practice? if I'm a renter, can I just tell my agent I won't pay next week's rent? it's caused a big alarm and URW was sold off over 30% before recovering some ground, and scentre was down over 10%. are there any legal basis for stop paying rent？ I sympathize with the retailers but what about office renters?
