In this economy, even if it's no longer at its worst, residential landlords are finding themselves and their property tied-up in bankruptcy and subject to the Bankruptcy Code's special, and often confusing, treatment for leases.
On December 3rd, I'll present the bankruptcy piece of Sterling's Landlord-Tenant Law seminar in Columbus, Georgia.
As a preview, I'll touch on in this blog post two important exceptions to the "automatic stay" that Congress added in 2005 for residential leases under Section 362(b) of the Bankruptcy Code:
1. prepetition judgments for possession and
2. endangerment and drug use.
