Sublet?  MEDIATE?  TERMINATE?

Even in the best of times, commercial leases—whether for office or retail space—can be extremely tricky to negotiate and draft. And now, in the worst of times? That’s why you need The Practical Real Estate Lawyer’s Manual On Commercial Leasing In Troubled Times.

The updated forms, checklists, and advice in this Manual originally appeared in recent issues of The Practical Real Estate Lawyer.

Purchasers of this volume will be able to access editable versions of its forms and checklists online!
(Instructions for doing so accompany the volume.)

 

Overview

Beyond the rent to be paid and the term of the lease (the drafting of each of which can be a formidable exercise in its own right), there are issues regarding usable space, rights to sublet or assign, options, terminations, and a host of other issues. And in tight economic times, landlords are seeking more revenue from those same leases, while tenants are trying to cut costs any way they can


The 26 authors whose forms, checklists, and advice appear in this Manual have been dealing with the squeeze on commercial leases for some time. Their work, which originally appeared in recent issues of The Practical Real Estate Lawyer, has been collected and updated for this volume.


With this Manual, you will learn how to negotiate and draft, from both sides:

Space and lease terms;

Subleasing rights as well as subleases themselves;

Shopping center leases;

Leases for the small office space;

Restoration obligations;

Insurance clauses in leases;

Security deposit terms;

Green building terms

And much more.

Included within the Manual (and also accessible online to Manual purchasers) are 31 forms and 15 checklists, designed to help in troubled times, including:

Space and term provisions

Lease checklists for landlords and tenants

Model commercial sublease agreement

Small office space provisions

Form shopping center lease

Restoration obligation provisions

Lease mediation form
