The cardinal goal of leasing is certainty. Landlords and their lenders want stable, long-term tenants and reliable, predictable rent payments. Tenants want stability and predictability, too. So, when one of the parties becomes insolvent or goes bankrupt, those carefully laid financial and operational plans go awry and new costs enter the equation.
The crisis in the bricks-and-mortar retail industry has brought these issues into sharp relief again. Landlords and tenants must grapple with what rights each have, how and when they may be asserted, and how they can preserve value in the lease. Part of this is a function of what the lease, part is a function of what the law requires.
