The COVID-19 pandemic continues to pose a series of challenges for the real estate sector. Although deal activity is starting to pick up in some jurisdictions, many issues remain, including pricing uncertainty, concerns over tenants' ability to meet rental obligations, borrowers' consequent ability to meet debt service obligations, and the changes that owners and occupiers will need to make to create safe places to live, work, shop and be entertained. During these unprecedented times, we understand that these challenges continue to effect the real estate sector.

Please join Shipman & Goodwin LLP real estate lawyers Kent Nevins, Lisa Zana and a panel of international real estate lawyers for an informative webinar hosted by our global partner Interlaw. Craig Tagen, Managing Director and Head of Asset Management and Separate Accounts at property investors Clarion Partners will also participate and provide his perspective on how those present in the real estate sector can navigate their way through this crisis. From questions on rent obligations, restructuring leases and debt service to assessing the suitability of premises for post-COVID-19 occupation, speakers will address the most significant issues facing the sector.

Topics to be covered will include:

  • Broaching the rent issue - for landlords and tenants, and lender considerations;
  • Practical issues facing investors on acquisitions, disposals and lettings;
  • Getting back to business - issues facing owners and occupiers of business premises;
  • Exercising prudent portfolio management for investors;
  • The importance of both long and short term strategic thinking in preparing for the future.

This will be an invaluable session for anyone with a stake in the longer-term health of the real estate sector, providing actionable insights for market participants today, tomorrow and beyond.
