The Committee considered a report of the Director of Community and Children’s Services in relation to the HRA Commercial Tenants: Current Tenant Arrears and Terms of Repayment Plans Relating to COVID-19 Rental Support.

 

 

RESOLVED, That – the Committee:

·         Delegate authority to the City Surveyor to agree best fit (shortest practical to achieve repayment) voluntary repayment plans from the options outlined in paragraph 6 of the 29th June 2021 Report to RASC and paragraph 5

·         Note that where tenants fail to engage, or agree voluntary repayment plans, this will lead to the City reconsidering the position post March 2022

·         Note that no further rent or service charge concessions (rent frees or deferrals) are recommended for this quarter

·         Note that any costs of repayment plans, including legal fees and any budget impact from repayment plans will need to be met from existing department budgets. However, the opportunity for budget holding departments to submit a business case to RASC for additional resources is proposed to continue to be available until at least September 2021
