Thorough Lease Review & Negotiation Attorney Serving Minnesota Real Estate Clients
In simple terms, a lease is a written agreement that permits the use of an asset, such as a home or retail space, by a party other than the owner of the asset. The lease is a collection of terms that clearly states the rights of both parties in regards to the asset. It is very important for everyone involved to understand what exactly they are agreeing to, and what will happen if either of them breaks the rules. We help our clients interpret the terms of leases and negotiate with other parties if adjustments are necessary.
Types of Lease Agreements
Even within the scope of real estate leases, there are many kinds with which we help our clients. Common leases and the issues related to them that we assist with include, but are not limited to:
- Residential apartment or home rental agreements
- Commercial rental agreements
- Landlord/tenant matters and disputes
- Condominium or homeowner’s association agreements and issues
- Roommate agreements
Ending or Breaking a Lease
Perhaps the most crucial time to work with an experienced lease attorney is when you want to get out of a lease. This happens for all kinds of reasons, ranging from wanting to get away from a bad roommate or needing more space for your business operations. Leases are intended to keep both parties accountable to their financial obligations, so ending one can be tricky, but ultimately it is always possible.
We help our clients review their leases to see what needs to be done to satisfy lease terms and negotiate with the other involved parties to find a tenable solution for everyone. If you determine you must break your lease, we can help you do so legally and responsibly so you don’t get into any trouble now or later.
