                            Issues Related to
                  Commercial Property Leases
                         
There is great variety across the broad spectrum of properties
generally referred to as “commercial properties” (office space,
retail space, restaurant space, outparcels, industrial space).  
Consequently there is also great variety among leases utilized
for the leasing of commercial properties.  The following
examines some issues that are often raised in connection with
commercial leases.  Issues related to specific projects and to
specific types of commercial properties must also be addressed
but these are issues that are often raised when negotiating any
type of lease for commercial property.

The following points are divided into issues related to the
form
of the lease, issues related to the build-out of the leased
commercial space, and issues related to the
operations of
landlord and tenant during the term of the lease.

There are certainly other issues that are not explored here
which must certainly be addressed in commercial leases such
as rental rates and rent structure, the term of the lease, renewal
options, parking issues,  and signage, but this article addresses
some of the non-deal oriented issues that often arise in the
context of commercial leases.
