Using a Commercial Real Estate Attorney
Are you planning to lease or purchase commercial property in Central Florida? There is really no such thing as standard practice in business and everything is subject to negotiation. And whether you are an entrepreneur starting your own business in Central Florida, or an experienced business owner, using an experienced commercial real estate attorney to handle the lease or purchase negotiations can help make sure you strike a more favorable deal.
Lease or Purchase Negotiations in Florida
In fact, a commercial real estate lawyer who is able to negotiate more favorable lease terms will not only more than offset the cost of their services, but it could decide how quickly your business is able to become profitable. And one area of the lease that could determine whether your business breaks even or not is negotiating fair and equitable terms for maintenance and repairs. The property owner often wants the tenant to be responsible for everything, but a good real estate lawyer can make sure you are not paying for repairs that should be the responsibility of the landlord.
And as far as responsibility is concerned, property owners will often include certain clauses in the lease that may restrict how you use the property and other terms that may affect the operation of your business. You will want your commercial real estate attorney to review and negotiate the removal of certain clauses that are not in your best interest.
