Commercial Real Estate Legal Questions and Answers

Commercial Real Estate

Commercial Lease

North Carolina

Asked on Apr 26, 2023

How is the rent determined in a commercial lease agreement?

I am a small business owner looking to rent a space for my business. I am currently in negotiations with the landlord of a commercial property and we are discussing the terms of the lease agreement. We have reached a point where we need to discuss the rent and how it will be determined. I need to understand more about how rent is determined in commercial leases so that I can negotiate a fair and reasonable agreement.

N'kia N.

Answered May 19, 2023

In North Carolina, commercial rent is commonly calculated as a set dollar amount per square foot. This dollar amount is usually based on factors like location, age, condition, accessibility, and amenities. However, there is no requirement for rent to be determined this way. Unlike a residential lease agreement, the terms of a commercial lease agreement can be almost anything that the parties mutually agree to. As a word of caution, in North Carolina, commercial tenants do not have the same degree of legal protections as residential tenants. For just one example, a tenant who wishes to terminate a commercial lease early may be responsible for the entire remainder of the rent unless the lease agreement says otherwise.

Commercial Lease

Maryland

Asked on Apr 12, 2023

Can the tenant make alterations to the property?

I am a tenant of a commercial property and I am interested in making some alterations to the property. I understand that I will need the landlord's permission to make these changes, but I am unsure of what the landlord's policy is regarding tenant alterations and what the legal implications of making such changes might be. I am looking for clarification on the tenant's rights and obligations when making alterations to a commercial lease agreement.

O.T. W.

Answered Apr 14, 2023

Hello! There should be an alterations clause in your lease that speaks to what is or isn't allowed in your space. Your safest bet is to have your landlord review and sign a letter of consent for more substantial improvements (beyond paint, mounting items, etc.)

Asked on Apr 20, 2023

Can the tenant make changes to the property's signage?

I am looking to rent a commercial property for my business and have recently come across a potential property. The lease agreement states that the tenant is not allowed to make any changes to the property's signage. I am interested in understanding if there are any exceptions to this rule and if the tenant can make changes to the signage.

Michael C.

Answered Jun 1, 2023

Standard commercial lease template includes language about the nature and extent of modifications tenants can make to a property. In this instance, there's no legal or regulatory exception that is going to protect you from a restriction in the lease. Your best bet is to negotiate directly with the landlord for a modification to the lease terms.

Commercial Lease

Massachusetts

Asked on Apr 24, 2023

Can the tenant sublease the property to another business?

I am a business owner and I am looking to rent a commercial space for my business. I am considering signing a commercial lease with the landlord, but I am concerned about my ability to sublease the property to another business. I am trying to determine whether this is an option that is available to me and what the implications would be.

Joseph M.

Answered May 12, 2023

In Massachusetts, a commercial tenant can sublet or even fully assign the unit to a third party - UNLESS there is a specific prohibition in the current lease. However, even if there is such a prohibition, it might still be worth speaking to the landlord about since it might be mutually beneficial.

Can the tenant assign the lease to another business?

I am a business owner who recently signed a commercial lease for a retail space.

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.
