Commercial Leasing: Real Property & Equipment
Today, leases are critical to businesses. They represent a significant cost and liability and, as such, they must be fully understood and carefully negotiated from the outset. We help both landlords and tenants draft and negotiate leases for commercial properties. We help you understand your rights and obligations and expose the risks up front.
Our lawyers can help landlords and tenants with any of the following commercial leasing issues:
- negotiating or drafting a new lease;
- advising a landlord or tenant on the interpretation of a section and their rights and obligations under a lease in a dispute;
- terminating a troublesome tenant or a tenant's rights on termination; and
- dealing with an assignment or sublease.
Our lawyers are also experienced in leasing various kinds of equipment and personal property and we can help you understand the different forms of leases and the implications of each for your business. For lessors, we help to ensure you're protected under the law. This includes having a detailed knowledge of the Personal Property Security Act and lien legislation in Ontario. We know the risks and how to help you manage them.
