COVID-19: Lease Disputes

NZDRC provides private mediation and arbitration services for commercial lease disputes arisen as a result of COVID-19 lockdown.   This special fixed fee arbitration and mediation service is designed to assist parties to commercial leases who find themselves in a dispute as to their payment obligations due to the ongoing lockdown.

The Government fully funded scheme has come to an end but the parties can still use our private services. For further information please contact our Registry staff who will assist you.
