Recently I spoke at a Commercial leasing seminar in San Jose. My portion dealt mainly with the scenario of the tenant filing bankruptcy. A copy of my outline can be found here. I hope you will find it useful, though it is not intended as a primer on bankruptcy law.
In a room full of property managers, not a one had experienced a tenant filing bankruptcy. I thought that was interesting.
Instead, the hot topics were unlawful detainers and my personal favorite, enforcement of judgments. Though not in my outline, I spoke a bit on the Order for Debtor’s Examination (OEX), post-judgment discovery, and the power of a turnover order and the Writ of Execution to authorize the sheriff (or deputy) to levy or garnish wages.
Many law firms can take you to judgment, but without the success of collection, it is merely academic.
