Reopening Commercial Buildings

Updated 3 months ago.

Troutman Sanders and Pepper Hamilton are producing a series of podcasts to discuss legal and business issues companies are confronting in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In this episode, Troutman Sanders partner Gary Knopf, Pepper Hamilton partner Hannah Dowd McPhelin, and Lisa Mize, Senior Vice President of Property Management and Construction Services for Shorenstein, discuss considerations for landlords and tenants as commercial buildings begin to reopen in this new normal. Pepper Hamilton associate Julia Tomec hosts the podcast.

Gary, Hannah and Lisa address the following topics:
• Local laws and guidelines landlords should be familiar with in light of COVID-19, such as the number of people allowed to gather in one area, requirements for building occupants to wear masks, and requirements to provide sanitizing stations;

• Methods to control common areas and why landlords should be concerned;

• How landlords should manage deliveries to their buildings; and

• The potential impact of landlords’ responses to COVID-19 on tenants, including passthrough costs and lease amendments.
