CRE Radio & TV founder and host, Howard Kline, is set to host a free webinar on Thursday, March 26, 2020 at 11:00 am Pacific/2:00pm Eastern to discuss landlord and tenant strategies for negotiating tenant rent relief, all with an eye towards an economic recovery after the dust settles on COVID-19.

“This webinar is about the business decisions relating to the inevitable requests for rent relief. While we will only touch on some of the legal issues and perspectives of the tenants and landlords. The detailed legalities, including discussions on Force Majeure, the covenant of quiet enjoyment as well as legal theories of Eminent Domain and “frustration of purpose” will be dealt with in later webinars, podcasts, blog posts and videos,” said Peter Morris, a guest speaker on Thursday’s webinar.

Topics due to be discussed:

  • Why should landlords and tenants consider rent relief even when there is no legal obligation or right?

  • What should the tenant do to maximize the rent relief requested or received?

  • Financials

  • How to approach the landlord

  • Other documents

  • Lease modification strategies

  • Landlord

  • Tenant

During this unprecedented time of COVID-19 chaos, tenants are struggling to navigate their next steps. It is certain that many, if not all, will be seeking rent relief, whether they are legally entitled to it or not. Landlords may be willing to accommodate where they can, as they seek to minimize their own exposure and insure the maximum revenue from their property.

The economic unrest draws similarities to the 2008 recession and some are looking to strategies used then to aid tenants in the uphill struggle that is sure to ensue COVID-19.

Kline will be joined by other industry experts to discuss the pending issues. Guest speakers will include:
