Lease dispute headed to arbitration after appeals court ruling

The 2nd District Court of Appeal in California has given a tenant a chance to arbitrate a dispute with a landlord in Los Angeles. This ruling reversed the decision of a lower court that had deemed the arbitration clause to be expired after 30 days from the notice that the landlord sent the tenant to quit the property.

Important commercial lease agreement provisions

The leases for California commercial properties in California are often several pages long and generally contain dozens of clauses. The signing of a commercial lease agreement often marks the beginning of a long and fruitful business relationship, but failing to read or understand certain key provisions of these legal documents can lead to protracted and costly landlord-tenant disputes.

Understanding the rights of a tenant

Those who wish to rent property in California have many rights. For instance, a landlord cannot reject an application for an apartment because of a person's race, gender or religion. Landlords also cannot reject applications from people based on their national origin, because they have children or because of a physical or mental disability. On a state or local level, there may be laws against discrimination based on sexual orientation or marital status.

What considerations should you have for a commercial lease?

Signing a lease on a commercial property for your business is very different from signing a lease on a residential rental property. Sure, you're agreeing to pay a certain amount of money each month or designated period, and the landlord is agreeing to let you occupy the space. But the services you might request of a commercial landlord -- and the requirements they might have of you in return -- are different.
