Default of a tenant under a commercial lease and their eventual eviction are fraught with risk and potential liability for the landlord.  Though the lease may specify extensive landlord remedies, most courts will strictly construe the lease against the landlord, requiring strict adherence to notice of default and other process-based provisions in the lease. Failure to comply with these provisions and the over-arching requirements of law exposes the landlord to substantial liability, including lease termination, loss of rent, and even damages. There are additional risks if the landlord accepts partial rent payments from the tenants, takes possession or tenant or third party property and sells it, or engages in other improper conduct. This program will provide you with a practical guide to tenant default under commercial leases and provide tips for drafting leases to protect landlords.   Original speakers will be available for questions.
