Real Estate Radio Hour Legal Minute – June 2011

For this month’s Legal Minute segments, I’ve focused on an important topic in these tough economic times; namely, bankruptcy.  You hear a lot of talk about bankruptcy, but what are the basic types of bankruptcy filings available, what happens to your house and, if you’re a landlord or tenant in commercial space, what happens to the lease when the tenant files bankruptcy?  Find out the answers to those questions by listening to this month’s clips below.  Special thanks to my partner, Dan Schleck, our Firm’s resident bankruptcy guru, who helped me with the content.

Oh, and if you’re wondering who the “competent bankruptcy attorneys” are that I speak of?  Why that would be Mr. Schleck, of course, and our colleague, Mike Sheridan.
