A lease is a big commitment for both landlords and tenants. Leases tie up a landlord’s property rights, often (in the commercial context) for a number of years. The financial commitment for tenants is also huge, as a tenant can remain on the hook for all the rent due through the end of the lease term – regardless of whether the tenant is still occupying the space. It can be difficult to understand your rights, as lease language is often confusing and complex.


Fortunately, we have years of experience negotiating and drafting these provisions. Downs Law offers flat-fee pricing to review and revise your lease, whether commercial or residential.


There is nothing more frustrating for a landlord than a non-paying tenant. A commercial lease contains very specific provisions for how to deal with a defaulting tenant, and the failure to follow these provisions can lead to less than desirable results. Not only is the filing and timing of dispossessory (eviction) actions with the courts highly fact-specific, but commercial evictions can be fraught with delays, pitfalls and technicalities that can derail unsuspecting landlords.


At Downs Law, we have handled hundreds of commercial evictions and will skillfully navigate you through the process. Our goal is to obtain the most efficient eviction possible along with collecting all the money you are owed.
