Rent collected for commercial property leases in the first two days of April were only slightly less than expected, based on a two year average, but by the end of that week had fallen significantly behind. This report dives into the data and uncovers the live picture of rent collection and its impacts on the New Zealand commercial property market.

This report is based on anonymised and aggregated data from reconciled rent invoices raised by New Zealand commercial property clients with a 1st April due date. Collection rates in April are compared to a two year monthly average.
