A Leasing Term Guide for Restaurant & Retail Owners
Contrary to what a landlord might tell a new tenant, most leases are negotiable. Commercial leases are complicated and there is no "standard" form, so each provision requires careful review.
This checklist is intended to identify some of the most important issues for tenants of retail and restaurant spaces, which should be carefully addressed in a landlord's lease form. Remember, business owners should be wise and have an attorney review this document prior to signing.
