Commercial Lease Review for Landlords

$1,950.00$2,950.00

The commercial lease review package for landlords provides you with knowledge and certainty about your lease. We will review the entire lease and provide you with a comprehensive report on every clause. You will also have the opportunity to discuss the lease and report in detail with one of our attorney’s to make sure you feel confident about any aspect you are unsure about.

Add the Negotiation option and we will negotiate directly with the tenant’s representatives after discussing with you your goals. You will be in control of the decision making process, but will have an experienced negotiator working on your behalf to assert your interests.

Clear

Once you have made the payment, you will be prompted to review a representation agreement between you and the Moschetti Law Group. This step ensures that there is clarity as to your rights as a client, as well as the scope of the representation.

Your account won't be charged for the services, until the Moschetti Law Group countersigns the representation agreement, making sure both parties agree to the transaction.

Upon receipt of the countersigned agreement, you will be given a secure link to upload your lease document for our review. At that time, we will also schedule a phone call to review your goals and to understand your objectives as a landlord and property owner.

Once your lease is sent in and we have a representation agreement in place, we will return the reviewed lease in 3 business days with lease comments and an explanation as to terms. A full lease abstract and report will be created. We will help you understand the impact of the current lease provisions, as well as offer suggestions as to how the terms could be improved to better serve your interests. We will arm you with the information and confidence you need on all of the issues, both from the legal, real estate and property owner's standpoint.

We will review and comment on the following areas and more:

  • Basic provisions
  • Possession
  • The premises and its measurement including BOMA standards

We charge $1,950 for a complete lease review. 

We recommend adding negotiations of terms to your complete lease review. The charge for this service is $2,950. This option is the best suited for landlords whose tenants are national brands and national franchisees whose interests are represented by their attorneys, as well as smaller tenants that do not offer a corporate guarantee of their leases and that expose the landlord to the highest level of financial risk.

When it comes to negotiations, having a third party represent your interests accomplishes three main objectives:

1). Removes the possible antagonism between the landlord and the tenant - a lease is a long-term relationship and you want to start it on a right note.

2). Helps to keep the lines of communication open, so no one leaves the table while the lease is under negotiations.

3). Ensures that the least important items do not get in the way of agreeing on the larger, most important terms of the lease.

We understand the delicate nature of negotiations and strive for the balance between satisfying landlord's interests and enlisting tenant's cooperation.
