A lease is transaction often more complicated than an outright sale of real estate due to the ongoing relationship between the parties. Parties to a lease spend a great deal of time and energy negotiating terms which will govern the tenancy for years. It is critical to carefully scrutinize the lease agreement to ensure the business terms are incorporated, identify troublesome provisions and provide solutions to address them. Tenant construction allowances, repair obligations, operating expenses, options to extend, tenant exclusivity, surrender and restoration requirements, and personal guaranties are among the issues that you have to address in the context of negotiating a commercial lease. An oversight in drafting can lead to unexpected business expenses, disputes and potentially costly litigation.
