Commercial Landlord Rights and Responsibilities

In a commercial landlord-tenant situation there can be a bit more “wiggle room” than that in a residential lessor – lessee agreement.

These rights and responsibilities are primarily established by the lease agreement.

Is there a commercial landlord – tenant matter you are concerned about?

While the specifics of the rights and responsibilities for a landlord and the tenant are established in the lease agreement, there are general aspects to these that should be known and taken into consideration. For example, landlords have the right to be paid on time per the lease agreement and usually have the responsibility for general care and maintenance of the property. Whether this includes cleaning and grounds maintenance is determined by the lease. The tenant should be allowed to use the property without interference from the property owner as long as that use does not violate any terms of the lease.
