Real Estate Leases

Real estate is often used by someone other than the property owner. In residential and commercial settings, the individual or company who owns the property may lease out its use to another party. In this situation, a formal lease will need to be signed, and that document will contain all of the relevant terms and conditions of the agreement. If you need a leasing lawyer to help you deal with any part of this process, contact Rinaldi & Poveromo right away. Our experienced team has served clients throughout Central & Northeastern Pennsylvania, and we would be happy to fight for your best interests.


Entering into a Commercial Lease

For many businesses, operating under a lease is simply a way of life. You may not have the capital available to purchase your own space to operate, and even if you did, such an investment might not make sense for your business model. So, you sign a lease and commit to a specific space and lease payment for a set period of time.

But are you going to negotiate that lease to make sure it works in your favor and not against you? It’s all too common for business owners to sign leases as they are presented, thinking those terms are the only option. Everything is negotiable in business, so bring in Rinaldi & Poveromo to make sure you fight hard for lease terms that are fair to you. By signing a fair lease right from the start, it will be much less likely that you’ll run into challenges later on.


Both Sides of Residential Leases

There are two sides to every residential lease agreement – the landlord and the tenant. At Rinaldi & Poveromo, we can represent either party, so feel free to contact us if you need help with a residential lease matter.

On the landlord side, your lease document must contain language that meets legal requirements and protects your interests. You stand to lose a lot if there are holes in your leases that can be exposed later. For tenants, you should be thinking in similar terms to a business owner when getting ready to sign your lease. Do the terms work for your needs? Are there any lease conditions that you would like to see changed or removed? Don’t be afraid to negotiate, and be sure to get in touch with the experienced team at Rinaldi & Poveromo if assistance is required.

Lease Litigation

When you sign a lease, you never want that contract to reach the point of litigation – but it does happen from time to time. If you are in the middle of a lease dispute and you need a leasing attorney to argue on your behalf, Rinaldi & Poveromo will be happy to do just that.

There are several circumstances that can lead to legal action related to a lease. These cases often have to do with one party wanting to break the lease early, but that is not always the case. In other situations, it’s one party acting in a manner that may not comply with the lease terms, which causes the other side to take legal action.
