State/Country relating to question: Texas
Do you have a copy of the lease?
I do in PDF format
Can you post it here?
OK, I got those attachments.However, my next question is - how negotiable do you think the landlord is to modify or change the lease?Usually, unless the property is less than 50% full, a landlord is not willing to make changes to the lease or it's clauses - it's a take it or leave it situation.
did u read the contract. what do u think. yes landlord is willing to negotiate
What do you want to change?
i just want if the contract is providing reasonable protection to the tenant.
If the contract has any vague, incomplete, or omit anything that should be reasonable be provide for.
I just want to have a general template of all the terms that should be include.
Here is a list of issues that are in commercial leases -that she should make certain of:
That's from Rocket Lawyer.
The problem I have is - that I don't know your aunt's business or the local business climate or other competing locations - I don't know the market. That there is nothing special or outrageous within the lease you sent - it seems standard enough.
I don't know how much the landlord is willing to negotiate if at all.
I don't know if the landlord is hurting for tenants.
The lease isn't particularly bias towards the landlord and against the tenant that you sent. In fact, it's a usual and customary lease.
Please - rate me with 3 happy faces or more for my answer! Thanks!!
