PAST LEASING GROUP CONFERENCE CALLS
~Nuts and Bolts of Leases~
I: The Lease’s Most Basic Terms: Parties and Premises
Going back to the roots of the Nuts and Bolts program, we have decided to run through the “big picture” of a lease agreement, and over the course of the series fully cover each of the major provisions contained in a lease and discuss how these provisions affect both land lord and tenant.
This month, we will discuss “The Lease’s Most Basic Terms: Parties and Premises.” Our discussion will focus on the Parties to the Lease: Land lord, Tenant, Guarantors and (indirectly) Mortgagees. Our speakers will discuss the basic motivations and core concerns of the parties, the nature of the landlord – tenant relationship and whether the lease is a contract or a demise of an interest in land. The speaker will also discuss issues related to properly describing the lease hold premises. Finally, the speaker will note the importance of confirming proper execution formalities.
Original call date, Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Speaker: Ben Weinstock, Ruskin Moscou Faltischek, P.C., Uniondale, NY
A full schedule and topics of new Nuts and Bolts of Leases series for 2014-2015 can be found below under Nuts and Bolts of Leases Materials.

LEASING GROUP/ASSIGNMENT AND SUBLET COMMITTEE CALL
NUTS AND BOLTS: ANATOMY OF A SUBLEASE
Original call date, Tuesday, May 20, 2014
As part of the Leasing Group’s Nuts and Bolts series, the Assignment and Sublet Committee is presenting the fifth in its Anatomy of a Sublease series. For this session the participants will discuss incorporation by reference, a topic that can flummox the best of us. The panelists will discuss what should be incorporated, what shouldn’t be incorporated, and the grey areas. Incorporation requires a great deal of thought and depends in part on the situation (is this a partial sublease or a sublease of the entire premises) and the nature of the over lease (is it tenant-friendly or landlord-friendly). The panelists will walk us through the process and, among other things, answer the question: Can you incorporate half a sentence?
Panelists: Ira Meislik, Managing Principal, Meislik & Meislik, Montclair, NJ; Andrew Green, Partner, Kelley Drye & Warren LLP, New York, NY; and moderator Jack S. Levey, Plunkett Cooney, Columbus, OH
