Real Property Lease Checklist

The real property lease checklist addresses the most common issues that you need to consider when you negotiate a real property lease. This comprehensive checklist identifies the terms and clauses that need to be addressed in a real property lease. It also contains questions under each term or clause that flush out the most important issues pertaining to that term or clause. It's a good tool to use when you have a real property lease in hand from the property owner and you want to know whether the lease covers all that it should cover so that you're properly protected. Of course, you should also have your attorney review the lease.

Included are:

  • clauses and contract terms that should be addressed, such as taxes and expenses, termination, and lease improvements.
  • issues relating to those clauses and terms that pertain to the lessor, lessee, or both.
