Communication between landlords and tenants across all markets has been unsure. Many wonder how leasing terms will evolve, what dialogue is being had and how landlords might adjust their offerings to tenants given the uncertainty today.       

Join Bisnow for a discussion with David Fitzgerald, vice chairman of CBRE New England, Kristen Binck vice president, legal at Oxford Properties Group and moderated by Mark Elefante, partner at Hemenway & Barnes, on how landlords and tenants are navigating the pandemic and the impact that the market uncertainty is having on meeting current obligations and negotiating new leases moving forward.   

Questions to be discussed:

  1. How has the dialogue between landlords and tenants remained productive?
  2. It's been a number of months since landlords initially made accommodations. What relief options or lease amendments are being explored due to the pandemic still persisting today?
  3. Have landlords become more aggressive about enforcing tenants’ lease obligations? If so, what are the resulting challenges?
  4. How are force majeure clauses and similar provisions affecting discussions between landlords and tenants?
  5. What new arrangements are landlords and tenants considering now that reopening is occurring more slowly than expected?
