Industries: Real Estate

During this unprecedented time of COVID-19, landlords and tenants are struggling to navigate their next steps. Many tenants will be seeking rent relief, while landlords must evaluate financial data, bringing clarity to complex decisions to minimize exposure and maximum revenue.   

Join our Advisory Real Estate team as we discuss:  

  • Why landlords and tenants need to consider rent relief even when there may be no legal obligation or right . . . yet! 
  • Typical directions of conversations about rent relief options  
  • Health safety measures, tenant improvements and expectations 
  • A summary of the rent relief requested and a proposed repayment plan 

We will also share financial, business and economic scenarios as landlords explore their rent relief options.   

Our speakers would like to hear from you prior to the webinar. Please send in your questions no later than June 22, 2020 to so we can be sure to address them.
