Common Details in a Commercial Lease

A commercial lease is unlike a residential lease in that you are talking about where you want to operate a popular business, not where you want to live in peace and quiet. As such, you cannot approach the situation exactly as you would if you were drafting or reviewing a residential lease. Not to worry, though, because Attorney Jonathan Winters has the experience and insight needed to carefully guide you through the situation towards a solution that protects your best interests.

Considerations for a commercial lease may include:

  • Monthly rent payments
  • When rent is permitted to increase
  • Beginning and end date of leases
  • Security deposit, which is usually larger for businesses
  • Whether or not landlord can rent nearby space to competitors
  • How commercial tenant can place advertisements around the property
  • Processes for commercial evictions and unlawful detainer actions
  • What commercial or industrial equipment can be used on the property
  • Review of local zoning requirements
  • Agreement of how utilities are paid
