Prohibition and WWII were accompanied by times of social upheaval. Prior to passage of Prohibition a lot of commercial tenants signed leases for saloons and wineries; the adoption of the 18th amendment meant they couldn’t operate such businesses. WWII saw Japanese-American tenants forcibly removed from their leased premises and saw other tenants unable to profitably conduct their businesses.

COVID-19 has changed overnight the economic landscape for many commercial tenants, leaving them to either negotiate rent abatement or deferral or face eviction and liability for unpaid lease amounts. Come hear an interesting one-hour program about how today’s tenants can use these older cases on “Commercial Frustration” to renegotiate their commercial leases in the present economy.
