Bill Summary

The purpose of this bill is to permit a landlord to terminate a lease of a portion of a multitenant commercial property if the tenant fails to use the premises for the purpose specified in the lease, and the tenant’s use or nonuse produces an adverse economic effect upon the landlord or another tenant of the property. It establishes a procedure for notifying the tenant and allows the tenant time to commence using the premises for its agreed purpose. It also requires the landlord to notify the tenant of the termination of the lease if the tenant fails to commence using the premises within the specified time. This section is new; therefore, it has been completely underscored.
