If you are entering into a lease with a prospective commercial landlord or tenant, or if you need legal advice on your contractual rights under an existing lease, a commercial lease lawyer can help. Relying on standard lease forms to protect your interests is risky business, no matter on which side of the transaction you are. Simoneaux Law Firm represents landlords and tenants with commercial lease matters.
Why Hire a Commercial Lease Attorney?
When you are leasing commercial office or retail space to tenants, you need a skilled commercial lease attorney who understands how to protect your business’s rights. If, instead, you are planning to lease space for your business endeavor, you need a commercial tenant attorney who can look out for your best interests and help you get favorable terms on your lease.
Hiring a commercial landlord attorney or a commercial tenant lawyer can make the entire leasing process easier on you. Having an attorney also increases your chances of feeling your interests were met and protected through your lease, giving you valuable peace of mind.
Understanding the Commercial Leasing Process
Before signing a commercial lease agreement, there are several factors to consider. It is essential that the lease be read in its entirety, as opposed to just skimmed. Since this is a tedious endeavor, many landlords and prospective tenants hire a commercial lease review attorney to perform this task. Companies in and around Austin, Texas frequently choose Simoneaux Law Firm as their legal representative.
Once the lease is read, the negotiating process can begin. Keep in mind that any concessions a company makes during negotiations will remain in effect for the length of the lease. Therefore, hiring a commercial lease lawyer prior to negotiating a lease is beneficial because the company has professional legal assistance before the process even begins.
