Many businesses need to lease commercial space to operate effectively and serve their customers. Commercial lease agreements set forth the terms of the arrangement between the owner (the lessor) and the tenant (the lessee). It’s important to recognize that commercial lease agreements tend to be much more complex than residential lease agreements, as there are several nuanced terms and conditions that the parties must acknowledge and follow. However, even the most clearly defined and comprehensive commercial lease agreement may not prevent disputes from arising at some point. As soon as a disagreement crops up, consider enlisting the guidance of a knowledgeable and experienced commercial real estate attorney who can help you explore your options. Reach out to the dedicated and caring attorneys at Sewell Sewell Beard LLC today to discuss your goals.
The working relationship between a commercial landlord and their tenant usually moves along productively and peacefully. However, disagreements or issues can arise at any time, and what initially appears to be a simple misunderstanding may escalate into a contentious legal battle without thoughtful and timely intervention. Disputes regarding commercial leases happen for any number of reasons, such as when a tenant fails to pay the rent on time or the tenant accuses the landlord of neglecting to repair a structural or safety concern within a reasonable period of time. Other common sources of contention may concern disagreements about renovating the premises, whether or not the tenant may sublet the space, whether the tenant may terminate the lease early, or disputes about security deposits. No matter what the nature of your landlord-tenant dispute may be, you can trust that our skilled and seasoned commercial real estate lawyers are prepared to protect your best interests at every turn.
