Commercial landlord-tenant relationships can have their tense moments. Also, all kinds of impactful legal issues can end up arising in connection to such relationships.
An important thing to note when it comes to commercial landlord-tenant disputes and legal matters is that they can come up at just about any time. All stages of commercial-property-related landlord-tenant relationships can pose legal issues and potentially see disputes, including:
- The formation of the relationship: Common legal issues at this stage include issues regarding lease agreement negotiation, review and formation.
- During the course of the lease: Matters regarding maintenance, alleged lease agreement violations or alleged failure to pay rent are among the disputes that can arise between landlords and tenants at this stage.
- The end of the relationship: Commercial leases don’t always end in a smooth and amicable fashion. Sometimes major disputes come up regarding things like eviction or early lease termination.
At any stage of a commercial landlord-tenant relationship, legal issues and disputes can have significant implications for both the landlord and the tenant. Also, how such issues/disputes are handled could impact what sorts of disputes and issues could likely arise later on between the parties. Thus, for both tenants and landlords, keeping the big picture in mind can be important when disputes/issues arise regarding the landlord-tenant relationship, whatever stage they come up in.
