    Panel 1: TI Allowances & Disbursements (1.0 MCLE) 1:30 – 2:30

  • Many leases provide for tenant improvement allowances and include complicated disbursement requirements. We will begin by hearing the broker’s perspective on how TI allowances are calculated. This session will then provide an overview of a typical disbursement process and we will hear the landlord’s and tenant’s concerns in connection with the disbursement process.
