Two of our commercial real estate lawyers, Esia Giaouris and Peter Prattas, have prepared this short piece, FAQ of Landlords and Tenants During These Uncertain Times, to address a few of the commercial leasing questions that businesses may be struggling with, such as:
Is your landlord obligated to offer you a rent concession?
Can someone suspend or terminate a commercial lease as a result of the current situation?
Do tenants still have to pay their rent if a landlord has made the decision to close the building?
Who pays for extra cleaning?
