COVID-19 Alert: Force Majeure and its Impact on Real Estate Owners and Developers

Orloff, Lowenbach, Stifelman & Siegel, P.A. presents the first part of a multi-part series it is launching to shed light on some of the major issues that commercial landlords and developers may find themselves facing during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Part 1 of the series, entitled “The Basics,” focuses on force majeure clauses in commercial real estate leases, and whether a tenant can utilize the clause, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting governmental restrictions put in place, to withhold rent based upon an inability to operate as it once did.
