Details

Market rent only (MRO) is the right of a tied-pub tenant to go free of tie. To request the option to go free of tie, a tied-pub tenant must give notice to their landlord.

These documents explain MRO and when notice can be given:

  • at tenancy renewal
  • following receipt of a rent assessment proposal as part of a rent review process
  • where there has been a significant increase in price in a tied product or service
  • where an event has occurred that significantly impacts on trade

Also included is an MRO notification form that tied-pub tenants can use to notify the pub-owning business of their intent.
