Top Lease Negotiation & Site Selection Considerations: Underestimating the condition of the premises

Tenants who take a property “as-is” put themselves at great risk. Even when the space looks fine and has been previously occupied, building codes may have changed or the unit’s infrastructure may be broken or inadequate.

Suggestion: It is best to have the landlord guarantee the space is up to current building, fire, safety, zoning and ADA codes. It is also important to have the landlord guarantee the condition of the electrical, plumbing, heating and air-conditioning systems for at least the first 90 days (if not the entire term of the lease).
