Rebecca Kent (host)
Thank you for tuning into this JLL Perspectives podcast. I'm Rebecca Kent, your host, continuing to cover the massive implications of COVID-19 on the real estate sector and how it is engaging with the broader business community. Joining me on this podcast is Richard Fennell, JLL's head of property asset management, and Sarah Philipson, a senior associate at the law firm Norton Rose Fulbright. Over the next 15 or so minutes we'll discuss how the landlord-tenant relationship has been playing out amid all the upheaval. How have they engaged? Are they shouldering the financial impact fairly? Are there enough safeguards in place? And, most importantly, what are we learning from it all? Richard, I'll start with you. The challenge thrown up by COVID-19 from a landlord-tenant perspective is not just who is going to pay the rent, is it?
