The COVID-19 pandemic continues to have a significant impact on the practice of real estate law. The continuing legal education programs presented by the Real Estate Law Section at the 2021 New York State Bar Association annual meeting will focus on the effects of the pandemic, as well as other topics of interest in lawyers specializing in real estate.

Landlord-tenant cases have been hit hard by the pandemic, as courts have slowed down or sometimes stopped processing cases. As a result, some homeowners took matters into their own hands by “locking out” tenants who had not paid their rent. Unfortunately, such actions are fraught with potential liability. “Illegal lockdowns and post-eviction procedures” will be explored by Carlos C. Perez-Hall, section executive member and well-known landlord-tenant lawyer, during the section’s program on Thursday afternoon January 21. Carlos will explore the topic from the perspective of courts, landlords and tenants, and provide useful advice to practitioners.
