New Jersey Commercial and Residential Lease Lawyers
Whether you are a landlord looking to lease a large-scale commercial property or a tenant seeking to rent an apartment or single-family home, the lease is a critical legal document that should be closely examined before you sign on the dotted line. Your lease agreement will set forth the rights and obligations of all parties to the rental contract; so, it is essential for you to make certain that you have a clear understanding of all terms and conditions discussed in the document.
The real estate lawyers at Einhorn Harris have extensive experience counseling clients in connection with all types of commercial and residential leases. Our lawyers are well recognized in New Jersey and beyond for their ability to assist clients with both routine and more complex lease arrangements. We understand what the law demands and work directly with our clients to ensure that their rights are fully protected at every point in the process.
Drafting and Negotiating Commercial/Residential Leases
The attorneys in our real estate practice are experienced in crafting leasing documents for all kinds of commercial and residential properties. Whether the lease transaction involves corporate office space, a retail establishment, cell tower, industrial building or an apartment or single-family home, our legal team is well situated to advise you at each phase of the transaction. From drafting and reviewing the lease documents to negotiating critical terms and provisions, our lawyers are committed to finalizing an agreement that achieves your most important objectives. We are proactive and creative attorneys that know how to work with the other side to reach a beneficial arrangement in a timely and cost-effective manner.
Resolving Commercial and Residential Disputes
While a lease is designed to prevent future conflicts and disputes, problems between landlords and tenants cannot always be anticipated or addressed in advance. When issues surface between the parties to a lease arrangement, our lawyers act quickly to find a favorable resolution for our clients.
When the matter involves a residential lease, our attorneys are well-versed in the laws governing residential landlord/tenant disputes. In particular, in New Jersey, these disputes are subject to the Anti-New Jersey Anti-Eviction Act (New Jersey Stat. Ann § 2A:18-61.1), which sets forth the specific procedures that a landlord must follow, including giving the residential tenant appropriate notice and time to cure, in order to properly evict the tenant. We understand how these matters must be dealt with and are very familiar with the various defenses that can be raised in residential lease cases. Our attorneys also have substantial experience handling matters involving college dorm leases, including subletting situations, which are also subject to the Anti-Eviction Act.
From the commercial end, our real estate lawyers represent both landlord and tenants in lease disputes. When conflicts surface, our attorneys work closely with our commercial clients to find solutions that best protect their business and financial interests. While our objective is to resolve these matters well before litigation ensues, our attorneys will aggressively advocate for our clients’ rights in court when the dispute cannot be fairly resolved outside of formal proceedings.
