Office and retail space leases are complex and lengthy instruments. The recent aftermath of the real estate crisis have also highlighted the risks and costs of poorly drafted leases for both landlords and tenants.  Economic provisions need to reflect changes over time, including rent escalators for landlords, but also flexibility for the tenant to return or sublease space it can no longer use.  There are subtle tradeoffs among exclusivity rights in retail leases, rents and the term of the lease.  Common area maintenance expenses, whether in an office building or retail center, are also fertile sources of cost estimate overruns and disagreements.  This program will provide you with a practical guide to negotiating and drafting real office and retail space.

Day 1 – December 15, 2015: 

Drafting and reviewing office and retail space leases in a strong real estate market
Letters of intent and term sheets – necessary inclusions, permissible exclusions
Detailed review of major provisions and key negotiating points of office and retail leases

Marketing, subletting space and its complications

Day 2  – December 16, 2015:

Common area maintenance issues – rates, limits, and capital improvements
Protecting against landlord or tenant default and drafting effective remedies
Exclusivity – no competition in the retail development and related issues
Special issues when negotiating retail co-tenancies 
Renegotiating existing office and retail space issues
