As your building amenities begin to reopen and absent employees return to work,
companies and landlords may unfortunately face lawsuits related to the coronavirus pandemic.
While there is nothing you can do to prevent lawsuits entirely, you can take steps to minimize
the risk and prepare a defense to swiftly resolve the case.

During our webinar, we plan to cover the steps the apartment industry should take
in order to minimize litigation-risks, including:
• What duty do I have to notify other tenants if one of my tenants becomes infected?
• When and how should I reopen common areas?
• What should I do about tenants who are asking for rent reduction because amenities and common
areas have been closed for over a month now?
• What are the risks of taking the temperature of everyone entering the building? What privacy laws
must I be aware of?
• What records must I keep of compliance with local, state and federal orders and guidelines?
• What information and signage am I required to provide?
• What are my rights as a site owner or manager?
• Will state or federal lawmakers adopt any liability protections for apartment owners and management?
