When a tenant moves into a commercial or residential property, he or she will have to sign a lease and agree to certain terms and conditions before being able to take possession of the property. These types of agreements usually lay out how much is to be paid, when those funds are due, how the tenant is to conduct themselves, what they are able to use the property for and other terms. The landlord or property owner will also be required to meet certain terms as part of the agreement. As most leases are designed to protect the landlord, and to some extent the tenant as well, specific penalties and/or stipulations will be enforced should either party violate the terms of the lease. As these cases can commonly become quite emotional and volatile, I strongly advise you obtain legal counsel from my firm as soon as possible.
