Real Estate Legal Questions and Answers

Commercial Lease

Florida

Asked on Apr 17, 2023

What's permitted alterations in a commercial lease?

I am a small business owner looking to rent a commercial space for the first time. I am considering signing a commercial lease and want to know what kind of alterations are allowed in the agreement. I would like to avoid any potential legal issues or disputes in the future by clarifying what is permitted before signing the lease.

Moss S.

Answered Apr 28, 2023

Usually permitted alterations are cosmetic, and non-structural in nature. Often times the Landlord will require the Tenant to submit plans, or in the alternative the lease will describe the fit and finish that would be allowed.

Building Lease

Florida

Asked on Nov 20, 2023

Can a building lease transfer to another party?

I am a tenant of a building in a commercial area. I recently received an offer from another party to take over my lease, and I am wondering if this is possible. I need to know if the lease can be transferred to the other party, and if so, what the process would be. I am also interested in understanding any potential legal implications of this transfer, as well as any other considerations I should take into account before making a decision.

Linda W.

Answered Dec 8, 2023

If the lease does not indicate in writing that it is assignable, without any legal implications, you would need the permission of the landlord/owner. And if agreeable, then they would need to be an assignment of lease.

Purchase And Sale Agreement

Florida

Asked on Sep 6, 2023

Purchase and sale agreement and inspections?

I am in the process of buying a home, and I recently received a Purchase and Sale Agreement from the seller. I'm concerned about the inspection contingency in the agreement, because I'm not sure if it protects me as a buyer if there are any issues with the home. I want to make sure my interests are fully protected in the agreement, so I'm looking for legal advice on how to properly interpret and negotiate the inspection contingency.

Linda W.

Answered Sep 19, 2023

It is recommended that you seek the assistance of an attorney before signing any contract. In addition, it is recommended that you sign an as-is contract, because the inspection period provides you the opportunity to terminate the contract for any reason, if you are not satisfied with the results of the inspection. But you must terminate within a timely period as set forth in the contract.

Commercial Lease

Asked on Mar 8, 2022

Need flat rate to do sub lease Kiosk at mall in Miami

Renting Kiosk as a sub leaser, need to verify contract and seeking a Flat rate.

Moss S.

Answered Mar 15, 2022

I have been a commercial real estate attorney for over 30 years. I can review the agreement, and negotiate and draft any revisions. Considering it is in a mall, I am guessing that it is with a major retail landlord which would require review of the underlying lease. I can give you a flat rate once you request a proposal.

Purchase And Sale Agreement

Florida

Asked on Sep 5, 2023

Who drafts the purchase and sale agreement?

I am in the process of purchasing a property and am in need of a Purchase and Sale Agreement. I am unclear on who typically drafts the agreement and am looking for advice from a lawyer. I understand that the agreement should be tailored to my specific needs and am looking for guidance on how to best proceed.

Linda W.

Answered Oct 10, 2023

Either the seller or the buyer can prepare a purchase agreement. Like any contract, it can be a standard document that one party uses in the normal course of business or it can be the end result of back-and-forth negotiations. Most often, the buyer's real estate agent will write up and prepare the purchase agreement for a house. Note that agents (not being practicing attorneys themselves) can't create their own contracts. In Florida commonly the parties utilize the Florida Realtors/FloridaBar-ASIS-6 Rev. 10/21/2021. That is an example of a approved form.
