During this show, Dan Shasteen and I will focus on specific lease clauses typically contained in commercial leases but that landlords and tenants pay little attention to. These provisions often are considered form but may have significant impact on the rights and obligations of both tenants and landlords. Some of the provisions that we will be discussing include: 1. Limitations on use; 2. Assignment & Sublease 3. Landlord's default and repair obligations 4. Estoppel Certificates We may be discussing additional provisions depending upon the available time. This will be a the first in a series of shows in which we will break down and discuss individual provisions of commercial leases.
