FAQs on Commercial Leasing with K&S Canon

What should I look for in a commercial lease agreement?

When reviewing a commercial lease, it's important to consider the lease duration, rent amount, rent increases, the use of the property, sublease and assignment rights, and responsibilities for repairs and maintenance. Ensure that the lease specifies who is responsible for utilities, insurance, taxes, and other expenses. K&S Canon can help review and negotiate these terms to align with your business needs.

How can tenant improvements be negotiated in a commercial lease?

Tenant improvements refer to modifications made to the rental space by or for a tenant. Negotiate with the landlord to include a tenant improvement allowance or permission to make improvements yourself. It's crucial to define what happens to these improvements at the end of the lease term—whether they remain or must be removed. K&S Canon assists in negotiating these terms to ensure they are clearly defined in the lease agreement.

What are common legal issues that arise in commercial leasing?

Common legal issues in commercial leasing include disputes over lease terms, non-payment of rent, and handling of repairs and maintenance. Conflicts can also arise from unclear clauses regarding tenant improvements, subleasing, and renewals. K&S Canon helps address and resolve these issues, providing guidance to prevent potential disputes.

How do I handle lease renewals and what should be considered?

Lease renewals should be approached with a clear understanding of the terms under which you are renewing. Consider whether the rental rate will change, if the lease terms are still favorable, and how market conditions have altered since the original lease was signed. K&S Canon can help review and negotiate renewal terms to ensure they continue to meet your business needs and market standards.
