A commercial lease is one that involves a store or other commercial property with a particular business. Because this owner may have several businesses in one area (a shopping center, for instance) that lease may be dependent upon other businesses as well. These leases are often more complicated that residential leases and should be handled by an experienced South Florida commercial lease attorney should a dispute arise.
Take the example of the shopping center listed above. Let’s say there is one major tenant that is a nationally recognized, popular chain store. This store is the “anchor tenant” of the shopping center because it is well-known, likely takes up the most space, and its presence brings in shoppers who bring business to the others in the shopping center. Let’s say it has three years remaining on its lease, but decided to move down the road because it thinks it will do more business. However, it continues paying on the lease to the former shopping center.
This anchor tenant could potentially be sued for breach of contract because it can have such a negative impact on the shopping center and the other businesses as well. Even if it the lease is silent on what to do if the tenant moves but continues paying its lease, this still may constitute a material breach. A Fort Lauderdale commercial lease attorney can examine the lease and find if that option is available. This is just one example of how complicated commercial leases can be and why they require a keen eye to fully understand all of the nuances addressed in the same.
