Thanks so much for choosing this forum to pose your important legal question. I will do my best to give you some honest and accurate guidance as I answer your question.


  1. I am a licensed attorney with property law experience. I will be glad to try and answer your question. I hope that the following information will be helpful to you, but please just write back if you have any follow-up questions or need clarification after reviewing the following information. Thank you for writing back with the additional information, which was helpful to my analysis of your inquiry.
  2. "I want to understand below,from my lease agreement,one of provision..." The clause you have quoted is a common component of many commercial leases. It is often either included as part of a drafted instrument or sold as part of a template lease containing "boiler plate" (standard) language. Sometimes it is included under a section labeled "Estoppel Certificates and Attornment". In technical language, the provision represents a clause whereby a mortgagor attorns a tenant to a mortgagee, which in turn gives the mortgagee a right to distrain, as an additional measure of security. In more plain terms, it simply acknowledges the existence of the landlord-tenant relationship and the certain duties stemming therefrom. Specifically, it means the landlord has the right to require the tenant to provide certain explanations to creditors or other parties, usually when the landlord is seeking to obtain financing. This process ("attornment") is simply part of due diligence associated with the financing transaction. So, basically, it simply requires the tenant to help out and back up the landlord by verifying or confirming the nature of the lease and the parties' business relationship.
  3. I hope that makes sense, but please do not hesitate to write back if needed. I shall be signing off soon to attend to some other professional obligations.

Hello again,


Thanks for writing back -- good to hear from you.


I do ask that you kindly press "Accept" to process my answer.


I will be glad to comment further -- please see below.


You have raised some additional points going way beyond your initial inquiry. Are you saying that this commercial lease clause is involved in litigation? Please provide full details so I can understand what is happening. I would also need to know the full name of the Court in which the case is pending, along with the name of your jurisdiction (state)please. I shall be away from my computer soon but will be sure to check back for any updated posts when I return to this online forum, which will most likely be tomorrow morning.


Until then, best wishes to you and you family for a safe and prosperous new year!


Take care and thanks again for choosing JustAnswer®!
