Commercial Tenant's Handbook

A guide for tenants who lease commercial premises from Milton Keynes Council

Covid-19 – Information for commercial property tenants

Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been doing as much as we can to help our commercial tenants through this difficult period, including the option to apply for a three-month rent holiday.  The deadline for applications has now closed, however we would encourage any tenant struggling to pay their rent to make contact with the team.  We will do what we can to assist you – please don’t ignore your bills or cancel your Direct Debit without speaking to us first.

Find out about support available for businesses re: business rates and grants, and to check your eligibility.

The government has published guidance on the COVID-19 support for businesses. These pages are updated regularly and provide details of all help available to business.

Milton Keynes Council is supporting our high streets, pubs, restaurants and other local businesses as they reopen carefully during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Please visit the #RestartMK section of our website for helpful materials and advice and look out for further information on our social media channels.

The Council have produced a Commercial Tenant's Handbook (PDF, 640KB) to give general guidance for both existing and new tenants who hold a lease in respect of commercial premises owned by Milton Keynes Council.

The handbook has been designed to help answer questions that are most frequently asked by both new and existing tenants and to clarify the role and responsibilities of both the tenant and the Council as landlord.
