Clients think subleases are simple. Their lawyers know better. In this program the panelists will focus on subtenant protections, starting with subtenant due diligence (the Overlease and physical plant issues), defining the commencement date, basic exclusions from incorporation-by-reference, basic and not-so-basic subtenant-protections, and, last but not least, reviewing the Overlandlord consent (did the overlandlord really mean to make the subtenant responsible for paying the sublandlord’s rent?).
