Can I temporarily cancel my office lease for covid?

Answer 1

No, you would not be able to temporarily cancel your office lease citing covid. This was clarified by the Delhi High Court in 2020 also. The Court clarified that a lessee cannot claim suspension of payment of lease or rental amount due to COVID-19. However, according to this judgement as well as the law in general, if your contract with your landlord contained a specific force majeure clause, then you may be able to claim for a suspension of lease.  [Ramanand and Others v. Dr. Girish Soni and Others (2020)]
