In the UK we are seeing and hearing that a lot of the big finance houses who take up the premium space in the City of London are severely reducing their footprint and allowing their workers greater flexibility to work from home which could lead to a potential reduction of up to 50%. Is this also being reflected in Africa?

Its become really a had task to collect Rents from residential properties over here in Nairobi Majorly Dew reduction of income or loss of income to the Tenants. reduction of rent to 50 or 60% Has put developers and Landlords in a hard place as some houses were mortgaged.... Instalments are lucking behind … How are you mitigating this situation?
From a tech perspective one of the big wins has been the fact that the infrastructure has been in place in the west to cope with the sudden demand of WFH. As builders and developers is there an acknowledgement that homes now need to have the infrastructure as part of the build to support high speed internet? Are developers working with ISPS to ensure that broadband is part of the planning for new estates? I feel it will become a key differentiator in the future

Development in the west was traditionally built around natural transportation modes - waterways, ports, canals etc and furthered by railroads and roads. If what Herman says is true, what affect do you foresee this having on future development - Victor Amoo

Did you liaise directly with lawyers with respect to the requirement to vary commercial leases (break rights/ rent concession and holidays/early termination) or did you do renegotiations directly with the tenants?
