Sub-leasing & Assignments - 2 CLE hours

Subleasing and assignments are essential tools for tenants to move space and mitigate the (sometimes substantial) expense of unused space.  But these tools can also be the bane of landlords, who in a sense lose control of the space to subtenants with whom they are not in privity of contract. Subleases come in a variety of forms, each a delicate balance of rights, remedies and liability among the landlord, tenant, and subtenant.  Carefully drafted, they can serve the interests of the parties for the term of the lease/sublease.  But subleases can be so complicated that they can easily go awry and descend into dispute over space, disruption in its use, and litigation. This program will provide you with a practical guide to the various forms of subleases and assignments, key issues for landlords, tenants, and subtenants, and tips to avoid common drafting traps.
