So many factors go into a successful lease for both the tenant and the landlord. A meeting of the minds regarding the lease’s economics, clauses, warranties, protections for all parties is a serious negotiation…no doubt about that. All parties are looking out for their best interests, as they should. That’s why it’s important for the tenant to have a solid team of professionals, i.e. commercial attorney, accountant, real estate broker, general contractor, permit expediter, liquor license attorney. Same for the landlord.
