All landlords have an obligation to ensure the property is maintained in an adequate state of repair. When it is a serious problem, your tenant may be able to apply for a court order requiring you to carry out the repairs. They may even be entitled to compensation.
If a landlord becomes insolvent, it’s likely that the liquidator will want to take the commercial property and sell it. In practice, this should mean that you’re able to continue occupation under your lease, but the landlord will change when the property is sold to another party. In such circumstances, the tenant has the right of first refusal under the law in England and Wales. This means that you are given the chance to buy the property before the liquidator can sell it to a third party.
A landlord should at least give the tenant 3 months notice, however this can change depending on the lease.
