Cases We Handle
Unless your commercial lease explicitly prevents it, you may enter into a subleasing agreement as a tenant or a landlord. A sublease occurs when the original owner does not lease the premises to you but leases the property to another person or entity between you and the landlord. The process of subleasing or subletting a property involves the current tenant finding a new person to move in and take over rent payments.
The cases that we handle generally fall into the following categories:
- Evictions —Business owners may experience cash flow problems, but if your tenant cannot pay rent or is unwilling to keep rent payments current, you must go through specific steps to have them legally evicted. With subleases, this process may be confusing and complicated. You need the knowledge of an experienced commercial subleasing dispute attorney to make you aware of your options and the eviction process for a subleased property.
- Property Damage — Tenants and landlords are responsible for any property damage that happens during a subleasing agreement. Both landlords and tenants should maintain and keep the property up to code. The sublease has a duty to ensure that the electrical wiring, plumbing, heating, and any equipment that is on the property is in working condition. If there is significant damage, you may need legal help to resolve a subleasing dispute regarding responsibility in a sublease arrangement.
- Leasing Terms — In some subleasing agreements, problems may arise about the disagreement of lease terms. A sublessee often inherits lease terms that have been negotiated by the sublessor on a master lease. However, the leasing terms may not be appropriate or favorable for the tenant. As a result, there may be disagreements regarding the terms of the lease. When this happens, you need legal counsel on your side to help settle this case.
Whether you are a property owner, landlord, or a tenant who is involved in a commercial sublease dispute, it is essential to hire an attorney who knows the ins and outs of commercial real estate law. A lawyer can also help you recover compensation for property damage, evictions, or other lease disputes involving the subleasing of commercial real estate.
