Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you.
What you want to include in your lease is a provision giving you a landlord's lien. The provision would look something like this:
LANDLORD’S LIEN – To secure the payment of Rent and the performance of Lessee’s obligations hereunder, Lessee hereby grants to Lessor a lien and security interest in and to all goods, equipment, fixtures, furniture, furnishings, inventory, machinery, and other personal property owned by Lessee and placed in or upon the Demised Premises and the proceeds thereof (collectively, the “Collateral”) during the term of this Lease. The provisions of this paragraph shall constitute a security agreement under the Uniform Commercial Code as adopted in the State of _________ (the “Code”), so that Lessor shall have and may enforce a security interest in and to the Collateral. Lessee hereby authorizes Lessor to file such financing statement(s), amendments and renewals thereof as may be required from time to time in order that such security interests may be perfected pursuant to the Code. Lessor, as secured party, shall be entitled to all of the rights and remedies afforded a secured party under the Code in addition to and cumulative of the Lessor’s liens and rights provided by law or by the other terms and provisions of this Lease.
