This webinar discusses key lease provisions from the commercial tenant’s perspective.  Some of the specific provisions covered include delivery of the premises, guaranties and security deposits, operating expenses, alterations to the premises, subleasing, and assignment.  More than just legal black letter law, the panelists opine on what provisions may be more or less negotiable, what their view of “market” is, and the differences in dealing with large, national landlords as opposed to smaller, local landlords.  Some of the specific terminology explained includes: base rent, CAM, ground lease, NNN, and TIs.

This webinar covers key concepts and sticking points in representing a commercial landlord in the negotiation and documentation of a lease.   Some of the concepts covered include preserving the lease form, being cognizant of third party (i.e., lenders, investors and operating expenses) interests, financial certainty and a clear allocation of obligations.  This webinar also compares and contrasts the very different concerns and needs of landlords of different real estate asset classes (e.g. office v. retail v. industrial space).
