Dealing with Difficult Commercial Tenants (Short of Eviction)

Problem tenants are everywhere - learn what you can do to prevent a bad egg.

Every commercial landlord has to deal with difficult tenants, but it is not always evident prior to leasing space just which types of tenants are most likely to later become problematic. Moreover, even long-term good tenants can become distressed when money is tight, with potentially serious consequences for a landlord (as well as its investors and lenders). This topic will enable those who work with tenants to better identify the types of tenants who tend to create difficulties and to implement procedures to avoid (or at least mitigate) the harm they can cause. A key part of this approach is understanding the legal, financial, and other incentives that drive tenant behavior in order to negotiate better lease workouts. Even the best agreement is no help if it cannot be enforced. Learn how to structure negotiated settlements and avoid expensive eviction proceedings in landlord-tenant court.
