Joining Ros Rowe in this webinar are John Forbes, consultant, Mark Robinson, Chair of the High Street Task Force and Tim Rayner, Joint National Head of Retail Disputes at Irwin Mitchell. Our speakers will share their views on the wider impact of the demise of many high streets on landlords, investors and lender. Reduced economic activity has led to cashflow difficulties for individuals and businesses which will result in many tenants unable or unwilling to pay rents. The consequences for landlords, investors and lenders will be explored as follows:
• Understand what the rental deficit means for landlords, their lenders and investors.
• Hear experts from different stakeholders; the fund manager, activist and legal adviser.
• Gain insights on what a new vision for the high street could look like and what this could mean for the landlord.
