Foreclosure of a senior encumbrance on real property (such as a first lien deed of trust) extinguishes a junior encumbrance (such as a lease entered into after the date of the senior encumbrance). However, the post-foreclosure conduct of the buyer at the foreclosure sale and the tenant may create, by implication, a new lease between the buyer and the tenant based upon the terms of the extinguished lease. Just as beauty is in the eye of the beholder, conduct creating lease affirmation has many facets.

Greenberg Traurig, LLP - Houston, TX
This presentation examines the legal rules governing a commercial landlord's and tenant's respective rights and obligations—when the lease is silent—to make and pay for routine repairs and maintenance and to insure against, pay for and rebuild after catastrophic damage. It considers the differing practical concerns of retail, office and industrial landlords and tenants within single tenant, multi-tenant and multi-use developments. And it offers a tool kit of drafting suggestions and sample forms to fix some of the defects in the repair, casualty and insurance provisions in different types of commercial leases.
