Commercial tenancies

Negotiating and entering into a commercial lease should be done with guidance from an expert. A commercial lease is normally a long-term, binding contract, often involving large sums of money. These types of relationships are normally the product of significant negotiations between a commercial landlord and tenant. As an example, there are no standard forms for commercial leases. If you plan to enter into a commercial lease, or are already in one, either as landlord or tenant, our office can assist with any and all legal issues that may arise.

Residential Landlord Leases

While generally simpler than a commercial lease, residential leases still pose numerous legal concerns to landlords and tenants. For example, landlords must comply with numerous consumer protection laws, such as the Fair Housing Act (which prohibits discrimination in the sale, rental, and financing of apartments or homes based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status, and handicap), as well as laws capping security deposits and protecting tenant privacy.

J. Mark Heldenbrand, PC has extensive experience handling issues that may arise under residential leases, from collecting back rent to ensuring that evictions are handled properly.
