THEY HAVE A LAW FIRM...
MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ONE TOO.
SO YOU'VE FOUND THE PERFECT SPOT
OK! Your search is over. You've found the spot you want to setup shop and do business. Maybe you've negotiated a rent that fits your budget and even agreed on some building improvements or other details. You'll recognize those details on the Term Sheet (or Letter of Intent)...but do you know what it's in the 30 page +/- document they're about to hand you to sign?!
ENTERING A LEASE IS A HUGE FINANCIAL COMMITMENT...DO NOT GO IN BLIND.
The financial commitment for tenants is huge and you'll be on the hook for all the rent due through the end of the lease term – regardless of whether you are still occupying the space. It can be difficult to understand your rights, as the language used to write leases is often confusing and complex, but it's not just gibberish. The words matter!
THAT'S WHERE DOWNS LAW COMES IN
We have years of experience negotiating and drafting leases and representing tenants who got into leases without a lawyer reviewing it first. We can review and revise your commercial or residential lease for a flat-fee as well, so you won’t be surprised by the cost.
A NO BRAINER INVESTMENT IN
For a ridiculously small percentage of the overall cost of your lease and building out your space, you can fully understand what's inside the pages of your commercial lease! Our lawyers will explain all the details you need to know in plain english and will help you understand what you can ask for and negotiate before signing your lease.
WE'RE TRAINED TO FIND AND EXPLAIN EVERY DETAIL IN A COMMERCIAL LEASE
It makes us crazy when we see a business owner hire a contractor to build out their space and an agency to design their logo and build their website, but then NOT hire a lawyer to review their lease! We don't mind representing clients in litigation down the road when they are frustrated about something in their lease, but we'd much rather help you avoid that situation all together. Besides avoiding headaches, we also help tenants to ask for concessions and negotiate for benefits they didn't even know they could ask for (or how to ask)!
WE'LL DO WHAT WE DO BEST SO YOU CAN DO WHAT YOU DO BEST
Let us put you at ease and give you the confidence you need to enter a long term lease and grow your businesses. We'll make sure you fully understand the important portions of your lease so you won't be left signing something that turns out to be surprising and frustrating later (when you find out what your landlord's lawyers put in your lease and you're stuck with it). Contact us today and we'll give you a flat rate quote to review your lease (no surprises, no guessing)!
