Commercial Lease

California

Asked on Apr 21, 2023

What's the property description in a commercial lease?

I am a small business owner who is looking to lease a property for my business. I am currently reviewing a commercial lease and am trying to understand what is included in the property description in the lease. I am hoping to gain more clarity on what the property description entails and how it affects my business.

Gagandeep K.

Answered May 24, 2023

A property description in a commercial lease has to sufficiently identify the extent and boundaries of the property being leased. For example, it can be described by a map reference or by metes and bounds, or include a description such as "that certain building on the south-westerly corner of California and Larkin Streets." The commercial lease will include defined terms such as "Building," "Property," and "Premises". The defined terms define/describe the "Property" on which the "Building" is located which has the "Premises"/"Space" that is being leased. A sample definition of is Property Description in a Commercial Lease: ""Property" means the real property on which the Building is located together with the Building and all appurtenant fixtures and personal property of Landlord used in the operation of the Building and/or the Property, and any other improvements now existing or hereafter constructed thereon[, including the parking lot, walkways, and landscaped ground as depicted on the site plan attached hereto as Exhibit [LETTER]]."

Purchase And Sale Agreement

California

Asked on Sep 6, 2023

Closing date in a purchase and sale agreement?

I am in the process of purchasing a property and have a Purchase and Sale Agreement in place. The agreement includes a closing date, but I am uncertain as to what the implications are if this date is not met. I am interested in understanding my rights and obligations concerning the closing date, and any risks that I could be exposed to if the date is not adhered to.

Rosemary L.

Answered Sep 12, 2023

If a closing date on a purchase agreement is not met, generally the party who has breached the agreement may not be allowed to close the transaction. Often there are penalties contained in a purchase agreement to reimburse the non-breaching party for their time, expense and fees caused by the breach of a party to fail to close on a closing date. However, if the parties are both working toward closing the sale, but certain impediments get in the way of a timely closing (such as a survey which is not completed, or a lender not having approved a loan in a timely fashion), the buyer and seller will often reach an agreement to continue the closing date to a later date. In some cases, a seller might require a buyer to pay a further amount on the deposit to insure that the buyer intends to proceed, particularly if the buyer is to forfeiet the deposit as a result of its failure to close the transaction.

Quitclaim Deed

California

Asked on Oct 1, 2023

Recording a quitclaim deed: how?

I recently inherited a property from my aunt and I am looking to transfer the title to my name. My aunt had created a Quitclaim deed transferring the title to me, but I am unsure of the process to record the deed and make it official. I would like to understand the process of recording a quitclaim deed to ensure that the title to the property is legally transferred to me.

Boris K.

Answered Nov 14, 2023

You probably want an attorney to review the deed and make sure it looks ok. You also want an attorney to help you with completing the Preliminary Change of Ownership Form (used by county to determine reassessment of taxes). If all of that looks good, then you want to record the deed with the county recorder. I can review deed and help with Preliminary Change of Ownership Form for $295. Same Day Service.

Contracts Counsel was incredibly helpful and easy to use. I submitted a project for a lawyer's help within a day I had received over 6 proposals from qualified lawyers. I submitted a bid that works best for my business and we went forward with the project.

I never knew how difficult it was to obtain representation or a lawyer, and ContractsCounsel was EXACTLY the type of service I was hoping for when I was in a pinch. Working with their service was efficient, effective and made me feel in control. Thank you so much and should I ever need attorney services down the road, I'll certainly be a repeat customer.
