Part Two of Living in a Post COVID-19 World: Navigating Implications on Commercial & Residential Real Estate Laws in Light of the Pandemic

June 30, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm



Join the House of Lebanon and AALASC for this 60-minute webinar presented  by attorneys Rudy Salo and Vanessa Haddad as they discuss the legal and economic implications of COVID-19 by exploring both its current and future impact on landlords and tenants, development and county infrastructure.

Among the serious economic concerns that many Americans face during the time of coronavirus and one of the most pressing is the need to continue paying rent despite facing a loss of income.
This affects many businesses who must pay commercial rent, and individuals, many of whom are laid off or furloughed, who must continue to make rent or mortgage payments on their residences. State and local governments have passed some relief measures to ease the burden, but the details may confuse many of us [potential beneficiaries].
Other effects of COVID-19 are the impact on cities, public transportation, commuting and development. With the work from home movement being the norm for the past few months, what will residential and commercial development look like in the future?
Some topics of discussion will include:
  • the work from home movement.
  • what will residential and commercial development look like in the future?
  • Senate Bill 939 – which prohibits evictions of tenants of commercial real estate during the current state of emergency related to COVID-19·
  • Assembly Bill 828- which would provide a temporary moratorium on foreclosures and unlawful detainer actions on residential real property.
