Scottsdale, AZ Commercial Lease Drafting, Negotiating & Review

Arizona Commercial Lease Attorney:  Lease Negotiation, Drafting and Review

Are you a small or medium-sized business being crushed by your lease payment?  There are various reasons that a commercial tenant (office, industrial/warehouse, retail, etc.) may seek to renegotiate their lease terms.  Declining revenues, increased operating costs, uncollectible receivables, the bankruptcy of a partner or customer can all result in financial stress and a need to re-negotiate the terms of your commercial lease.  The Law Office of Joseph A. Velez works with landlords and tenants to renegotiate commercial leases, lowering rental payments and/or modifying for more favorable lease terms.

There are different types of workout solutions available for commercial landlords and tenants wanting a lease renegotiation (or lease modification):

  1. Early Lease Termination

  2. Subleasing

  3. Re-Assignment of the Lease

  4. Rent Concessions and Rent Forgiveness

  5. Shortened Lease Terms

  6. Modification of Terms

Commercial Lease Rent Reductions and Re-Negotiation

Having an experienced real estate attorney on your side during a lease negotiation can significantly increase the likelihood of securing rent reductions, the early termination of a commercial lease or even a significant improvement of the current terms of the lease.

Commercial Lease Negotiating Leverage

The landlord’s approval and consent is typically required to amend a lease, sublease, or to reassign a lease.  With adequate leverage, prepared strategy and skillful negotiation, the landlord’s consent may more easily be obtained.  Our office will carefully review your contract and landlord’s administration of the lease for errors or flaws to be used as negotiating leverage.  Additionally, we will assist in determining whether the landlord has correctly followed all provisions and obligations in the lease.

Commitment to Our Clients

The relationship between attorney and client is one of the most respected bonds; an alliance based upon shared principles, common objectives and mutual respect.  Our office’s primary role is to help clients in sorting out the various considerations, assigning priorities, measuring risks against gains, together with skillful execution aimed at increasing the chances of achieving the clients goals and aspirations.  Whether you find yourself with unfavorable lease terms, unmanageable monthly payments or simply want to be released from your commercial lease please call us.
