There is no doubt that COVID-19 has changed the way people occupy space and interact, which, as a result, has caused a decline in demand for space and property. The unprecedented crisis is expected to have lasting effects, depending on how long the virus persists.
In order to respond to the crisis, it is important that property managers and owners take action now rather than later. In the post-pandemic era, landlords should review some strategies regarding property leases.
COVID-19 has seen the closure of many retail locations, not just in the United States but across the globe. Since the duration of the pandemic is uncertain, landlords, tenants and lenders are all trying to figure out their next steps involving real estate inter-parties.
While the relationship between property owners and tenants depends on individual lease agreements , regarding leases to private and commercial properties, the post-pandemic era will require some changes that property owners can make to address the unique challenges brought about by COVID-19.
