Author: Eric M. Goidel, Senior Partner
The section of the proprietary lease dealing with termination of the proprietary lease is one of the most important sections. It gives a board of directors the ability to evict and foreclose upon a shareholder who is not complying with the proprietary lease. Many proprietary leases were drafted 40 to 50 years ago. They have not necessarily kept pace with the times, with changes in laws, or with how the court system now deals with landlord-tenant issues. For the full article click here.
