Sales and purchases of residential or commercial real property raise a variety of issues for the sellers and purchasers of real property. With regard to leased property, whether you are a property owner or lessee, it is important to have a good understanding of the underlying property or lease agreements that affect where you live or work. Landlord/tenant difficulties, for instance, can affect the workday in ways that drain a business of its time and financial resources, which in turn sap creative resources. Do you know your rights as a tenant? Do you understand your landlord’s obligations? Are your agreements clear and understood by all parties to the agreement?
Do not wait until a problem arises to interpret the language in the agreements that you sign. Ask questions before signing. It will help to save you from having real estate problems later. Know your rights and obligations today.
