PCA Advice documents

We are highlighting the recent update on the 2nd of April delivered by the Office of the Pubs Code Adjudicator.

The Pubs Code adjudicator (PCA) has announced the regulated pub-owning businesses (POBs) have signed a formal declaration that serves to protect certain tenant rights during the Covid-19 outbreak. See attached documents.

It effectively stops the clock from 16th March on many code deadlines that apply to tenants making arbitration referrals during the emergency period, and provides safeguards relating to specific Market Rent Only (MRO) option rights.

A detailed statement from the PCA can be found here – Here.

Alternatively, you can read the PDF version attached titled – ‘COVID-19 A Message from the PCA and DPCA (2nd April)’

We must stress that Tied Pub Tenants read the document titled ‘PCA Covid-19 Declaration Announcement (April 2nd)’ as it will set out the specific impacts focusing on key areas that may affect you if you are in a PCA referral or arbitration right now.
