Commercial Real Estate Leases
It’s a basic fact that almost every business enterprise will enter into a commercial real estate lease for some type of commercial space every three to five years. Who is looking out for your best interest?
Real estate transactions can be the source of a competitive advantage or the bane of your existence. Having an experienced and knowledgeable real estate attorney is well worth the cost. At The Hale Law Firm, we offer experienced and knowledgeable commercial lease negotiation and review. Call us today for your free initial consultation.
We represent both landlords and tenants throughout Texas in franchise, retail, shopping center leases, and office space leases. Your broker or real estate agent may say that they will review your lease, but they do not have the legal expertise or training to advise you on all of the provisions. One small item overlooked on a lease can cost you an astonishing amount of money. Terms in a lease are often difficult for people to understand. Attorneys draft most leases, and as such they are not always user friendly. We have the knowledge and skill to read a lease and break down the lease, putting it into terms that are easier to understand.
In reviewing your commercial lease, we will evaluate such issues as:
- Letters of intent
- Tenant build-out allowances
- Options to renew
- Exclusivity and permitted uses
- Maintenance and repair obligations
- CAM and NNN (Triple net) charges
- Default and remedies
- Insurance requirements and indemnification
- Personal guarantees
Due to our location in Waxahachie, Texas, the majority of our clients come from the Dallas-Ft. Worth area, including Dallas, Ellis, and Tarrant counties, but our services are by no means limited to the DFW area.
Commercial real estate leases are complex legal documents, not to be entered into lightly. The Hale Law Firm assists commercial landlords and tenants by evaluating, negotiating, and drafting real property leases for a range of retail, professional, and industrial businesses.
