Commercial Landlord Bankruptcy: Plan Ahead (If You Can)

While many believe that the commercial real estate market may be turning the corner, others fear that the "wall of debt" (billions of dollars of commercial real estate loans coming due in the next few years) combined with a softness in the financial markets could lead to a new wave of distressed real estate projects and potential landlord bankruptcies.

There are important differences in the rules governing the treatment of leases in a landlord (as opposed to tenant) bankruptcy that can affect strategies designed to mitigate bankruptcy risk. This OnDemand Webinar will review the rules applicable to commercial leases in a landlord bankruptcy, highlighting differences from the better known rules in a tenant bankruptcy, explore some of the special issues that may come up in a landlord bankruptcy, and discusses some of the current issues. This program will give you the background you need to identify potential planning opportunities that may mitigate the effects of a landlord bankruptcy.
