Efficiently navigating tenant defaults while preserving the landlord’s remedies is critical, particularly with respect to defaults for non-payment of rent. Six-figure arrearages can accumulate quickly for the inattentive landlord, and inaccurate or poorly served notices of default can have catastrophic consequences on a landlord’s ability to collect those unpaid rents. Likewise, the documented resolution of non-payment disputes (e.g., mechanic’s liens, permitted use restrictions, and operational defaults) is important so that simple permitting matters do not escalate into a tenant disappearing with an improvement allowance prior to the rental commencement date. The lawyers at McKenna, McCausland & Murphy, P.A. are experienced in preserving the landlord’s remedies through lease enforcement procedures. When does the Guarantor need to be served with a default notice? When should the lease be terminated? Is the non-monetary default material to the lease? For nearly two decades, our lawyers have quietly resolved tenant disputes by issuance of proper notices, stipulated agreements, and estoppel letters - again and again without the need for litigation.
