Protect Your Business’s Contractual Rights

Crafting a balanced, clear, and sound lease agreement for your retail, office, or restaurant business requires understanding the potential pitfalls as best as possible. Allow Zaharevich Law Office to be at your side at one of the most critical stages of your business’s life cycle.

Triple-Net Leases — Triple-net leases require the tenant to pay rent and many of the landlord’s expenses as additional rent. Often, the terms related to payment of these sums as additional rent are unclear and unsubstantiated. Terms related to all amounts due and their due dates should be apparent upon reading the four corners of the lease agreement.

Permitting and licensing — Businesses requiring extensive renovation may encounter challenges before opening their doors. The business must consider whether zoning allows for the proposed use and how long it may take to be fully operational in the space. Zaharevich Law Office can assist businesses with permitting and licensing questions related to retail, eating and drinking, and office space.

Drafting for contingencies — A skilled drafter attempts to include as many favorable terms for their client as possible. The drafter must give attention to potential problems that might arise, foresee these, and determine how to best address the problem beforehand.

Lease Termination — Disputes may inevitably arise. A constructive discussion begins with understanding each party’s obligations and rights under the lease agreement. If you need a workout or settlement, Zaharevich Law Office can negotiate on your behalf and help you arrive at fair and reasonable terms.
