Leasing commercial property is not as simple and straightforward as it may seem. Many new business owners think the terms of a lease cannot be negotiated and often do not understand the long term impact a commercial can have on the success of the business. Whether you are the lessee or lessor, an experienced business law attorney can help you save time, money and potential disputes by reviewing or creating a lease agreement for you.
Most commercial leases are written by and/or for the protection of the lessor (landlord) not you, the lessee. As with any contract, it often pays dividends to have an experienced business law attorney review any contract, including commercial leases, before signing such an agreement. Commercial leases are far more complex than apartment leases and often have many stipulations. An attorney can help you understand the existing stipulations and offer legal advice and possible changes to the lease agreement.
