UK landlords have experienced a significant curtailment in the collection of rent for the March quarter. When reflecting on rental collection 10 days after the March quarter date, only 49.7% of rent due had been received, which contrasts to an average of 69.7% collection from the last two years.

There is notable cash collection variance across asset classes, however. Comparing rental collection 10 days after the March quarter date to its two-year average, office assets have proved most resilient.
