We are able to provide advice and draft a legally binding lease agreement that will protect the landlord's property and secure your rights under law. 

The law firm has also represented many tenants of leased property. Almost every business will require a lease agreement to secure commercial office or warehouse space, but unfortunately most small business owners wrongfully assume the real estate agent is acting on their behalf. As the real estate agent is normally engaged by the landlord or seller and is paid a commission based upon the sale or lease price of the property, the real estate agent will try to help the landlord or seller achieve the highest price and most beneficial terms and conditions. In fact, the real estate agent is legally obligated to protect the landlord or seller and to help them achieve the highest possible price. The same rules apply to a residential lease. 

Residential and Commercial Lease Agreements are normally written by the landlord's attorney and can be difficult for a potential tenant to understand. Lease agreements contain the rights of the landlord and tenant and the obligations of each. In many cases, the tenant relies upon his real estate agent or broker to review the agreement, but these agents do not have the training or expertise to understand and translate the lease into "non-lawyer" terms. An overlooked provision or a misunderstood term could cost the tenant an incredible amount of money. To avoid unnecessary conflict later, or a costly oversight, it is essential the tenant understands the many legal obligations assumed on taking possession of the property or sign a lease agreement. By having an experienced real estate lawyer review the lease agreement before it is signed, the lawyer can alert the tenant to the many obligations being assumed and translate the document into layman terms to make sure the tenant completely understands the terms and conditions of the agreement. In addition, the lawyer can provide advice and assistance in negotiating the price and terms of the agreement and possibly make it more favorable to the interests of the tenant.
