Thank you for your follow up.

No. Subleasing provisions are not standard in commercial lease and any terms in the commercial lease are always up to the negotiations between the landlord and commercial tenant.

I wish you the best of luck!

I guess this meant that if we need to prove that we are allowed to sublease we need to be able to find some definitions and terms in the raider?

rider, sorry
Real Estate Lawyer: Alex Esquire, Attorney at Law replied 9 months ago

Thank you for your follow up.

Does the lease state anything about subleasing?

Customer reply replied 9 months ago
No, the lease is a "standard form of store lease" from the real estate board in new york, inc. How is a section normally called which deals with sublease terms?
Real Estate Lawyer: Alex Esquire, Attorney at Law replied 9 months ago

Thank you for your follow up.

Generally, unless the lease contained a clause / provision that states that the commercial tenant is permitted to sublease commercial premises, commercial tenant would not be permitted to sublease entire or any part of the commercial premises without landlord's written permission.

I wish you the best of luck!

http://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/clb-sublet-assignment-clauses-commercial-leases.htmli know that it is not very accurate info one can find in the internet but the link above states the opposite.
"Unless your lease prevents it, you may rent to anyone you like and charge any rent you choose"
may i point out that we are talking about a commercial lease...
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
are you still standing by our earlier assessment that subleasing is by default prohibited?
Real Estate Lawyer: Alex Esquire, Attorney at Law replied 9 months ago

Thank you for your follow up.

Unfortunately, you cannot rely on information that you find online, as such information could have been posted by anyone and might not apply to each situation, so my answer remains the same, based on the fact that commercial lease contained specific name of the commercial tenant and also of the commercial landlord and any subleasing without written authorization from the landlord, would breach the lease, since the sub-tenant would is not listed on the lease.

I wish you the best of luck!
