ABA 2018 RPTE Spring Symposia, 'When Harvey Met Irma: Drafting Lease and Construction Provisions That Withstand Damage and Destruction'

Hannah Dowd McPhelin, a partner and a vice chair of Pepper Hamilton's Real Estate Practice Group, will be speaking at the American Bar Association (ABA) Section of Real Property, Trust & Estate Law's 30th Annual Spring Symposia. Ms. McPhelin will be a moderator on the panel “When Harvey Met Irma: Drafting Lease and Construction Provisions That Withstand Damage and Destruction” on Friday, May 11 at 8:00–9:00 AM.

In the days following Harvey, Irma and the wildfires in California, many owners and tenants of properties located in the path of a storm called their attorneys in a panic, requesting advice with respect to several topics:

  • Construction delays
  • Force majeure
  • Landlord termination rights
  • Tenant termination rights
  • Abatement of rent
  • Restoration obligations
  • Access to the property.

This panel, which includes attorneys who practice in Florida and Texas, will discuss the above topics and highlight how lease language can be improved in anticipation of the next storm season.
