Commercial Leases

Central Florida Real Estate And Business Law

For a business that is renting space, the creation of a commercial lease is a paramount concern for the success or failure of that business. Understanding how commercial leases work and how to protect your business interests in a lease agreement are important aspects of commercial real estate and should be handled prior to signing any contract.

At Storey Law Group, P.A., our experienced commercial real estate attorneys assist in the drafting and review of commercial leases in Central Florida. Commercial and residential real estate leases are quite different, both in a practical and a legal sense. It is important to understand these differences in order to effectively protect your business in the future.

When problems and disputes occur, the lawyers of Storey Law Group also represent clients in commercial real estate litigation.

Commercial Lease Protection For Any Size Business

At Storey Law Group, we assist family-owned businesses, LLCs, partnerships, corporations and other companies in the drafting and review of commercial leases, including ground leases, assignments and issues of guarantors. We can help you understand commercial leases and how they may differ from residential real estate leases.

Commercial real estate leases are fairly flexible and may be negotiated much more specifically than residential leases. Businesses may need special features and conditions in their leases and can be customized to the needs of the landlords and the businesses in question. Consumer protection laws are not particularly helpful as relating to commercial leases. Due to the need for new tenants, many landlords are more willing to negotiate commercial leases than residential ones.

Unlike residential leases, however, commercial real estate leases are not easily broken or changed once they are signed. Commercial leases do have more flexibility before signed, but afterwards are harder to modify. Leases or subleases in commercial transactions are binding and are typically long-term deals with a substantial amount of money involved.
