The Bankruptcy Code provides a Chapter 11 debtor a powerful commercial lease tool to aid its restructuring efforts. A debtor may assume valuable real estate leases, and reject onerous ones. As explained below, a debtor’s time to assume commercial leases under which it is a lessee is limited to either 210 or 300 days from the date of the bankruptcy filing, unless the landlord consents to further extensions. The Bankruptcy Code further provides that a debtor’s failure to assume a commercial lease before expiration of this time limit results in the lease being “deemed rejected,” requiring the debtor to surrender immediately possession of the leases premises.
