Dedicated firm works to protect the rights of tenants and landlords
Forming a fair, understandable, enforceable lease agreement creates a strong foundation for your business whether you are looking for a retail space, industrial site, investment property or some other commercial location. Our experienced firm will help you make confident decisions and safeguard your interests by providing knowledgeable advice on:
- Triple-net and other leases — Many commercial leases are offered on a “triple net” basis, which means that the tenant not only is responsible for rent payments, but also for taxes, insurance and maintenance costs. Regardless of which side you’re on, it’s important to gain an informed perspective as to how much these additional payments will amount to.
- Financing arrangements — Businesses might need assistance making lease payments, especially if they are just starting up or expanding their operation into a larger space. We have extensive experience handling sophisticated property and finance matters and use what we’ve learned to create sound funding structures to accompany commercial leases.
- Preparing for contingencies — One unexpected event could change the course of a business and drastically affect whether lease terms are appropriate. Before you finalize an agreement, our lawyers take the time to analyze your situation thoroughly and consider lease language to address foreseeable contingencies.
- Disputes and termination — Disagreements over property conditions, rent payments or use of the premises threaten the value that lessors and lessees derive from the property. The first step in achieving a favorable resolution is gaining a detailed understanding of each side’s rights and duties. We’ll explain what options you have and discuss the termination process if you believe that is a potential solution.
Having lived and practiced law in South Florida for decades, we’re familiar with the real estate laws and land use regulations that could drastically affect the value of your rental property or the appropriateness of a location you are considering. By working closely with each client and analyzing each commercial lease agreement carefully, our attorneys can spot potential contract problems or obligations that could have unexpected consequences.
