Please see the currently updated information about the Polish regulations related to the legal and business situation of COVID-19 in Poland (the list of discussed issues is presented below and updated on current basis):
Emotions do not stop at the end of the legislative work on the draft bill regulating the rental and tenancy contracts in shopping malls in Poland in the era of the COVID-19 crisis. In this case, the Polish government addressed an amendment to its own bill to Polish Parliament, which it put to voting 24 hours earlier.
KIEŁTYKA GŁADKOWSKI KG LEGAL is closely following the legislative process of anti-crisis regulations which the Polish government wants to introduce in Poland to alleviate the economic situation of the COVID-19 crisis, particularly by means of the emergency COVID-19 act (the so-called anti-crisis shield).
One of the economic problems that the Polish government wants to regulate in this way is the issue of rents and rental agreements in retailer shopping malls in Poland (i.e. in large retailer malls of over 2000 m2).
The main problem is the issue of who is to bear the burden (cost) of closing the shopping centres due to the condition of the COVID-19 epidemic announced on March 20, 2020 throughout Poland.
The original draft bill (about which you can read here) assumed that the rents will be covered in 90% by the landlords (e.g. the entity that owns the entire shopping mall). The government’s amendment to the draft anti-crisis law, submitted on March 27, 2020, introduces a completely different solution.
Pursuant to Article 46 of the Act of 5 December 2008 on preventing and combating infections and infectious diseases in humans (consolidated text Journal of Laws of 2019, item 1239, as amended), the Polish Minister of Health announced epidemic status due to SARS-CoV-2 virus infections from March 20, 2020until further noticethroughout the entire area of the Republic of Poland.
The status of the epidemic was announced by the ordinance of the Polish Minister of Health of 20 March 2020 regarding the announcement of the status of the epidemic in the territory of the Republic of Poland (Journal of Laws No. 491, as amended). The statutory “epidemic state” authorized the Polish government to introduce a special legal situation in the Polish business.
