South Florida Landlord-Tenant Lawyer
Commercial leases share numerous similarities with legally binding residential agreements, with the parties being the lessor and the lessee. However, substantial differences in the laws exist, and Holiday Hunt Russell PLLC stands ready to protect your interests, whether you’re the landlord or tenant. With close to 30 years of experience as a Fort Lauderdale lease dispute lawyer, you can count on Holiday to help prevent legal issues from occurring, or resolve those involving landlords and tenants after a lawsuit is filed in Broward County court.
A lease could involve office space, shopping centers, stand-alone facilities, warehouses, manufacturing operations, undeveloped land, business parks and cell towers. The lessor could be a private proprietor, a publicly traded for-profit corporation or a property management firm. The tenant could be a small business owner, a multinational company or a nonprofit service agency. All landlord-tenant issues have one thing in common: One party is permitted use of space owned by another party in exchange for compensation.
Though a lessor-lessee relationship obviously relates to property, whether in the form of vacant land, space in a building, or the building itself, the core of landlord/tenant law revolves around contracts. Written or verbal, a signed lease creates a contractual arrangement under which both sides have specific rights and responsibilities. As with all types of contracts, details are extremely important.
