Once the terms of a commercial lease have been finalized after hours of careful negotiation and the necessary signatures are appended to the document, both property owners and tenants often breathe a sigh of relief, confident that the matter is effectively resolved and eager to turn their attention to other pressing matters.
While this feeling of confidence on the part of commercial landlords and tenants that the terms of the lease will be honored and no issues will develop in the foreseeable future is admirable, the reality is that legal disputes arise with far more frequency than either side might imagine — especially in a competitive market like New York City.
Indeed, while these disputes frequently revolve around such issues as nonpayment of rent, repairs, renovations, maintenance or property damage, they can also involve highly arcane legal issues that are often less than clear to even the most sophisticated commercial landlords and tenants.
