Rising Risk in Office Lease Exposure

The long-term nature of office leasing has delayed the market’s adjustment to the changes in office utilization triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic, allowing building owners to maintain some income from existing tenants. However, with the demand for office space still slow to recover, the upcoming lease expiration dates indicate potential challenges for landlords facing lease rollover risk. Most leases active during the first quarter of 2020 have now expired, meaning tenants have already decided whether to renew or relocate. Nationwide, only 20% of office leases that were active at the beginning of April 2020 remain in effect.
