McQuaide Blasko attorneys discuss landlord-tenant law
Three McQuaide Blasko attorneys addressed fellow attorneys and real estate professionals during an April 18 continuing-education seminar, "Landlord-Tenant Law - Surviving in a Difficult Economy." Presenting at the Altoona seminar were:
- Sean Burke, of McQuaide Blasko's Hollidaysburg office, who practices in the areas of real estate law (including landlord-tenant law and leasing), commercial law, litigation, estate planning, and intellectual property law. He discussed essential proactive and remedial terms in leasing transactions, as well as landlord options when a tenant defaults.
- Thomas Schrack, of the firm's State College office, who focuses his practice on business and transactional law, taxation, municipal law, and real estate law, particularly leasing, financing transactions, and sales and acquisitions. He explained the rights and obligations of tenants in leasing transactions.
- John Snyder, of the firm's State College office, who practices primarily in civil litigation, with an emphasis on commercial litigation and labor and employment. He offered input on how legal ethics influence attorney actions in landlord-tenant matters.
The program was designed to alert landlords, property management professionals, real estate agents, and property investors to Pennsylvania's current landlord-tenant laws. The seminar was sponsored by Sterling Educational Services, Inc., and is available via audio recording.
