Condition of Premises

Submitted by SC-admin on September 30, 2013

The landlord and the tenant of an industrial or commercial real estate building has an obligation under the lease to maintain the property and a duty to keep the premises safe.  If either one of these parties causes a situation where the premises are considered unsafe, the lease will dictate the protocol for correcting the potential hazard.  Unsafe premises must be avoided at all costs due to the safety and health of the building's employees and visitors.

“I had a client involved in a real estate matter who needed intensive guidance fast. Lee was able to guide him every step of the way, helping him evaluate properties for potential investment, as well as connecting him with other needed professionals. If Lee doesn’t know the answer when it comes to commercial real estate, he knows someone who does.”
