Contract review important before leasing commercial property

by | Jun 17, 2015 | Commercial Real Estate |

When in need of commercial space in Florida or elsewhere, leasing such property can be a great option for a person who is not ready or wanting to buy. Before jumping in, though, it is important to carefully review and negotiate the terms of a commercial property lease. An experienced real estate attorney can help with this matter.

The owners of commercial properties draft lease agreements that are meant to protect their best interests. Unfortunately, certain terms may not be the best fit for potential tenants. Some, however, may feel they are not in positions to make requests for changes. This is far from the truth. Signing a contract simply for the ability to use a certain space, that has terms that are unrealistic or could hurt your bottom line, can be extremely counterproductive.

You do have the right to ask for changes. Though it may feel otherwise, negotiating lease terms does not have to be an intimidating experience. Having a representative with a strong background in Florida commercial real estate law may prove to be a valuable commodity.

An experienced attorney can certainly help potential tenants decide what contract terms would be ideal, then work to finalize agreements that accommodate their specific needs.
