dear expert, I need for you to show me in detail how to fill in this lease with information I gave you in the question, not just the commercial lease. please re-read the question.
Dear Tug Wug: Doing that would constitute practicing law in your state, which our policy prohibits.
Please Opt out of this question. Thanks
Hi, as IrwinLaw said, we are not allowed to practice law by filling out the lease for you, but I can give you this general information:1 - Date the lease as of 4 years ago (for example, this lease is effective as of July 1, 2008) and put the term end as June 30, 2018 ( using the above example as the start date).2 and 3- Sticking with the above date example, you should state Monthly rental amount shall be $35,000 through July 1, 2013. Beginning August 1, 2013 rental amount shall increase to $36,050 per month until the end of the term.4 -Example of language you could use: At the end of the term, Tenant shall have 2 options to renew this Lease for an additional 5 years. The monthly rental for the first renewal option term, if exercised, shall be $37,131.50. The monthly rental for the second renewal option term, if exercised, shall be $38,245.50.5 - in the section about maintenance, write that tenant shall be responsible for ALL maintenance and repairs on the property. Under landlord obligations write that landlord shall pay taxes and insurance. under tenant obligations write that tenant shall get its own insurance on its property located at the leased space. I hope this is helpful. Let me know if you have other questions.
