on Leases (Sixth Edition) clarifies and analyzes the full range of lease
provisions and conceivable landlord-tenant situations to give readers
unsurpassed practical instruction on how to negotiate and draft airtight agreements
that protect clients’ rights and minimize their liability exposure.
Highlights of the latest update—Release #9—include:
Chapter 13, Condemnation. Updated discussion underlines the importance for a landlord, if it is the landlord’s intent, to expressly state in the lease that upon condemnation, the lease automatically terminates (or terminates at landlord’s option) and the tenant waives any right to the condemnation award.
Chapter 14, Renewals. Updated discussion covers Minnesota’s statutory provisions barring retaliatory eviction, but that apply only to retaliation for complaining to a government agency or filing a suit, not complaining to the landlord.
Chapter 15, Purchase Options. Updated discussion includes an example of a purported election that is ineffective because it did not conform to the lease.
Chapter 16, Default by Tenant. New discussion explores the extent to which courts will enforce a tenant’s waiver of certain rights if the waiver is expressly set forth in the lease, and agreed upon by the parties.
Chapter 17, Exculpatory Clauses. Updated discussion covers how different states handle exculpatory clauses, including Alabama, California, Illinois, and Pennsylvania.
Chapter 21, Distraint, Landlords’ Liens and Tenant Security. The updated discussion underlines the importance for a tenant to request during lease negotiations that landlord’s assignee is required to specifically assume landlord’s obligations with respect to the return of the security and the landlord is only released if it actually delivers tenant’s security deposit to the grantee and provides tenant with notice of such transfer.
Chapter 25, Fixtures. Updated discussion provides another sample provision in a lease with strong tenant protections for fixtures.
Chapters 11, 18, 20 & 22–24 have been updated to incorporate the latest case development. To aid in your research, the Table of Authorities and Index have also been updated.
As the legal community adjusts to the COVID-19 new normal
virtual work environment, law librarians face unique challenges. It is
vitally important for law librarians to be proactive in monitoring the needs of
the respective practice areas they support, including ensuring adequate
research is being performed in those hot Covid-19 practice areas and ensuring
alerts have been set up to monitor late breaking legislative and regulatory
changes. Additionally, now is the time to proactively communicate the existence
of virtual research tools and provide training when lawyers cannot fall back on

decisions. Designed as a primary source for non-specialist attorneys, this concise
reference treatise acts as a step-by-step guide through the bankruptcy laws,

Small Business Cases: The Small Business
Reorganization Act of 2019, effective February 19, 2020, created a new form of
Chapter 11—the subchapter V case—for small business debtors, offering an
alternative form of relief to that provided by the small business case. See Chapter 11.
Domestic Support Obligations: The BAPCPA
clarified the circumstances under which an obligation arising out of a marital
dissolution is dischargeable by introducing the concept of the “domestic
support obligation.” See Chapter 1 and
Avoidance: The Small Business Reorganization Act
of 2019 added a new clause to section 547(b) regarding trustee avoidance
actions, the purpose of which is to require the trustee to conduct an
investigation into alleged preferences, rather than simply sue anyone who the
debtor’s ledger indicates received a payment in the ninety days prior to the
petition. See Chapter
It’s National Library Week, and we at PLI are especially proud to celebrate this year. Access to information is never more important than amid a global health crisis. Over the past several weeks, we’ve been in awe of the ways libraries of all types and sizes are rising to the meet the demands of this challenging period despite being forced to close physical locations. We are particularly impressed by those law librarians who—if our inboxes serve as indication—are hard at work managing resources and providing remote access during these uncertain times.
