Real estate law continues to be affected by the pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to have a significant impact on the practice of real estate law. Continuing legal education programs presented by the Real Estate Law Section at the New York State Bar Association’s 2021 Annual Meeting will focus on the effects of the pandemic, as well as other legal topics. interest for lawyers specializing in real estate.

Cases between landlords and tenants have been hit hard by the pandemic, as courts have slowed down or sometimes stopped processing cases. As a result, some residential landlords have taken matters into their own hands by “excluding” tenants who have not paid rent. Unfortunately, such actions are fraught with potential liability. “Illegal Lockouts and Post Eviction Procedures” will be explored by Carlos C. Perez-Hall, a member of the Section’s Executive Committee and well-known landlord-tenant attorney, during the Section’s program on Thursday afternoon, January 21. Carlos will explore the topic from the perspective of courts, landlords and tenants, and provide useful advice for practitioners.
