Commercial Leases

Commercial leases are unlike their residential counterparts, there is much less regulation of the business aspects of those leases. For example, there are no caps on security deposits or rules protecting a tenant’s privacy, or consumer protection rules in respect of a tenant’s default.

Many commercial leases are not based on a standard form or agreement and are drawn up by the Landlord customized for their particular needs and requirements. As a tenant, the lease must be carefully reviewed to understand the extent of your obligations as a tenant as a commercial lease cannot easily be broken or changed. As a landlord, the lease must be accurate and sufficiently detailed as the court may rule than any ambiguity in the lease be read in favour of the tenant.

Whether you are the Landlord or the Tenant, obtaining the advice of experienced legal counsel can be invaluable in these situations.
