What Apartment Communities Need to Know About Opening Back Up
June 10, 2020 | 2pm-3pm | ZOOM
As your building amenities begin to reopen and absent employees return to work, companies and owners may unfortunately face lawsuits related to the coronavirus pandemic. While there is nothing you can do to prevent lawsuits entirely, you can take steps to minimize the risk and prepare a defense to swiftly resolve the case.
During our webinar, we plan to cover the steps the apartment industry should take
in order to minimize litigation-risks, including:
- What duty do I have to notify other tenants if one of my tenants becomes infected?
- Reference AZDHS and CDC protocols
- When and how should I reopen common areas
- Following local government and health dept guidelines in conjunction with client and company expectations
- Best practices for Pool and office area disinfection
- What types of cleaning products should we be using to disinfect
- List N approved products
- What should I do about residents who are asking for rent reduction because amenities and common areas have been closed for over a month now?
- What records must I keep of compliance with local, state and federal orders and guidelines?
- What information and signage am I required to provide and where can I purchase it?
- What are my rights as a site owner or manager?
- Will state or federal lawmakers adopt any liability protections for apartment owners and management?
- Will my insurance play a part in our decision of when and how to open?
- We prepared a release for tenants to sign to use the common areas. Can I require them to sign it?
- Are there any special steps I can take to help reduce the risk that our staff will become infected at work?
- Can I require tenants and/or vendors to wear mask? Do I have to provide masks to tenants who come into my office?
