When you’re considering a new business, one of the first issues comes up is ‘Where will I operate?’
You may identify a place, you may want to approach a landlord or maybe you have a broker. It’s fundamental to know whether or not you’re going to be able to operate in the place that you have in mind.
Leases are complex arrangements, particularly when it comes to commercial transactions. More often than not, you’re dealing with a sophisticated landlord. You may or may not have the background and experience. Therefore, consulting with an attorney, someone who’s done this hundreds if not thousands of times, is going to give you at a minimum, equal footing and hopefully a leg up in dealing with the landlord.
