Lease Agreements



Leasing commercial property is not as simple and straightforward as it may seem. Many new business owners think the terms of a lease cannot be negotiated and often do not understand the long term impact a commercial can have on the success of the business. Whether you are the lessee or lessor, an experienced business law attorney can help you save time, money and potential disputes by reviewing or creating a lease agreement for you.

Most commercial leases are written by and/or for the protection of the lessor (landlord) not you, the lessee. As with any contract, it often pays dividends to have an experienced business law attorney review any contract, including commercial leases, before signing such an agreement. Commercial leases are far more complex than apartment leases and often have many stipulations. An attorney can help you understand the existing stipulations and offer legal advice and possible changes to the lease agreement.

With more than 30 years of legal experience, business law attorney Mike Watkins can help you with a wide variety of business related matters. Lease agreements are one of the most common types of business documents attorney Mike Watkins creates and/or reviews for small business owners.

Commercial lease agreements can take many different forms, including:

  • Shopping Center Leases
  • Net Leases
  • Land or Ground Leases
  • Triple Net Leases
  • Gross Leases

It is important to fully understand all the stipulations in a a lease agreement. Many new business owners do not fully understand the terms of a lease agreement and later find out they have agreed to additional expenses or automatic lease amount increases by signing the lease agreement.
