In the initial weeks, Colliers estimates that more than 25% of tenants have made immediate requests for some form of relief from their landlords and we expect that number to grow. This situation has placed an unprecedented amount of pressure on landlords, both financial and operational, as they scramble to process these requests and understand the impact these requests have on their building values, portfolios and obligations to lenders and shareholders.

Reach Out To Us To Get Started
This approach might include extending your lease term, providing more relief up front to help you weather the COVID pandemic, or altering existing terms to help present a case that makes it easier for the landlord to bump your request to the top of the list.
We will work with you to identify surplus holdings you may have and build a plan to recover costs through lease terminations or subleasing. If you own real estate, we can help you structure a sale and leaseback or dispose of excess non-strategic assets to improve your balance sheet.
