Algorithm of proceeding:
The tenant of the property must notify the owner of the need to reduce rent payments. The tenant, in addition to the letter, must provide grounds for the inability to use the leased property. Evidence can be provided of any kind, but at the same time must confirm the impossibility of using the leased property.
If negotiations with the landlord regarding the reduction of the rent payments are successful, it is necessary to conclude an additional agreement to the rent agreement, which will include the respective changes, which directly relate to the amount of the rent for the property.

If it is impossible to provide the above-mentioned materials to prove the necessity of reducing the rent payments will become impossible.
