Commercial Lease Lawyers

One of the first steps in opening a new business is deciding on a suitable location for the enterprise. You will need to consider the following factors when deciding whether a commercial property is suitable for your needs. You will need to assess the property itself, the terms of the commercial lease agreement proposed by the landlord, the legal restrictions on the property’s use (municipal zoning), and the effect of the property’s location on obtaining the permits you may require to start your business, such as a liquor license.

At Pax Law Corporation, our lawyers can assist you with your commercial lease by reviewing the lease terms, reviewing and explaining any zoning limits on your proposed location, and assisting you with any permitting legal process. Get in touch with Pax Law today!
