Small Biz Pro Tip: Commercial lease considerations for California small business owners and landlords

About this event

With 8 in 10 small business owners struggling to make commercial rent or mortgage payments and a statewide eviction moratorium to sunset on March 31, a wave of commercial evictions and foreclosures is likely on the horizon.

Please join Start Small Think Big and Small Business Majority as we provide legal context to business owners and landlords who are navigating rent issues in California during the public health crisis. A business advisor from North Coast SBDC will provide useful information for understanding the current state of the commercial rental market and access to free and ongoing expertise to help you make the best choices for your business in 2021.

Topics of discussion:

  • An overview of the current economic trend in California
  • An overview of your rights as a commercial tenant in California
  • A panel of legal experts and business advisors to help you navigate
  • How to find information and rent relief options in your city or county

Due to demand, approximately 30 minutes will be dedicated to Q&A at the end of the webinar, total webinar duration will be 90 minutes.

Start Small Think Big! and Small Business Majority have teamed up to design a legal workshop series called Small Biz Pro Tip, a free workshop series facilitated by lawyers and small business policy experts, designed for California small business owners that are expanding on or improving upon their business and need access to guidance from employment, tax and labor attorneys.
