Landlords, tenants, and commercial real estate

Commercial real estate property is always trading hands in the New York City area. Along with this, landlords and tenants work together on a large scale, with most realizing the importance of respecting the other and agreeing to a mutually beneficial business relationship.

Commercial real estate encompasses buildings of all sizes, spanning a variety of industries, such as:

-- Industrial

-- Office space

-- Retail

-- Restaurants

-- Warehouse

It does not matter what side of the deal you are on, buyer or seller, landlord or tenant, there are many laws you must become familiar with. No matter who you are, you have goals that you want to accomplish.

When it comes to a commercial real estate lease, for example, the following steps must be taken into consideration:

-- Negotiation of the lease

-- Drafting a lease (for the property owner)

-- Reviewing the contract (for those who are seeking commercial space)

To go along with lease agreement negotiations, there are times when an issue can arise along the way. For example, a landlord may attempt to break the lease or a tenant may find that he or she is unable to pay as much as agreed upon.

If you plan on getting involved with commercial real estate, learn as much as you can about the industry and how it works. This will put you in better position to reach your goals and avoid disputes with others.
