From the Commissioner – April 2022


Since May 2020, the QSBC has assisted small business tenants and landlords with leasing and COVID-19 pandemic related rent matters. Thousands of disputes have been lodged with us, resulting in hundreds of free mediations, with the majority being successfully resolved. Behind every one of those numbers are owners, employees and their families along with purchasers and suppliers and their families – the list goes on. Not every story has had a happy ending; however, we have helped hundreds of tenants and landlords to preserve their commercial relationships and get on with business giving everyone the best chance to recover.
