Lease Drafting and Review
Reviewing and Drafting Leases
Our firm reviews and drafts leases for landlords and tenants alike. We create leases that are fair and clear and protect the best interests of our clients. If you are opening a new business, or if you are a current business owner interested in commercial real estate property, leasing may be a viable option. At Militzok & Levy, we can help you realize your business goals by reviewing any lease and fully informing you of its terms. We have drafted and negotiated leases at major shopping and lifestyle centers, malls, and office buildings.
Breach of Lease
Our experience drafting and reviewing leases has given us an in-depth understanding of their terms. When a client requires representation because the other party has not complied with the terms of a lease, we can help. Leasing issues that are often the subject of real estate disputes include:
- the amount of rent owed or when payments are due
- the length of the lease
- the condition of the premises
- landlord and tenant improvements
- build-out obligations
- violations of use clauses
- the enforceability of certain lease covenants
- compliance with assignment and sublease provisions
In a real estate lease, landlords and tenants are not required to accept all terms of any lease presented to them. Assistance from an experienced leasing attorney can help ensure that your rights, business and livelihood are protected.
