The Pubs Advisory Service (PAS) has launched the MRO (Market Rent Only) Advisory Service  –  to help explain the new legislation to licensees.

The service will help tied tenants and lessees get the facts about the new legislation which will allow licensees to choose a Market Rent Only (MRO) option at lease renewal or rent review.

The PAS was set up in May 2012 by a team of industry experts on the back of the official agreement with the Government.

The MRO Advisory Service will publish guidance, supply an online "no-worse off" MRO rent calculator and help in the development of the pubs statutory code, which is due to be finalised by end of May 2016.

The MRO Advisory Service team, including campaigners Simon Clarke and Dave Mountford, will join PAS team leader Chris Wright, in a number of roadshows.

Wright said: “We have already been contacted by a lot of licensees asking for information and that have signed up as on our website. We are going to film the seminars and it will be available on the website.” 

Launch

There will be a  launch event and seminar at the Underbelly, Hoxton, London on 1 June 2015 at 10.30am. The tour will roll out across the country with events to be finalised for York, Liverpool, Exeter.

Further details of the venues and further roadshows will be published shortly.
