Latest News & Developments in Commercial Real Estate Law

Since 2008, we have used our real estate law blog as a way to keep readers informed about the latest developments and news within commercial real estate law. Some of the topics we regularly address include court decisions on disputed commercial real estate transactions, limited liability company law and high-end residential real estate transactions. In addition to informing readers, we make it a priority to provide an in-depth analysis of the topics we discuss.

Although we put a lot of effort into ensuring that our real estate law blog is a consistent source of useful information, we want it be more than just a broadcast medium. That's why we encourage all of our readers to share their thoughts and opinions in the comments section. We've also designed our blog posts to be easily shareable through Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook, making it easy to start a discussion on one of those social media platforms.

If you want to ensure that you never miss a new post from our real estate blog, you can use the RSS or email option on the left to sign up for updates whenever a new post is published. You may also want to follow Tom on Twitter @TDKearns where he tweets on commercial real estate and business law topics.

New York’s Executive Orders 202.8 and 202.28 Should Not Stop Commercial Lease Enforcement, Though New York City Legislation Sets Limitations on Landlords Seeking Recovery From Personal Guarantors for Tenant Defaults

Governor Cuomo’s Executive Order 202.8, dated March 20, 2020, froze evictions of any residential or commercial tenant through June 18, 2020, but did not expressly restrict taking enforcement actions against tenants short of an actual eviction. On May 7, 2020, Governor Cuomo issued Executive Order 202.28, which extended that moratorium until August 20, assuming the owner or tenant “is eligible for unemployment insurance or benefits under state or federal law or otherwise facing financial hardship due to the COVID‑19 pandemic.” Neither of these Executive Orders expressly restricts landlords from taking enforcement actions against tenants short of an actual eviction, including terminating leases based on tenant defaults. They also do not obviate a commercial tenant’s obligation to continue paying rent under the lease. Read More ›
