Financing

At Law Office of David J.

Negotiate and Review Leases

At Law Office of David J. Hollander, we understand that you take on substantial liabilities and risk whenever you enter into a lease agreement, whether you are a landlord or a tenant.  As a landlord, you want to protect your investment and make sure the tenants are bound by the terms of the lease and that you will have limited exposure.   As a tenant, you want to know what your leasehold expenses and obligations are and what duties the landlord is obligated to perform in a timely manner.  At Law Office of David J. Hollander, we have over 20 years of experience helping clients with leasing issues.  We understand the numerous types of leases which may be appropriate for a given situation.  We can assist you in negotiating the terms of the lease or in drafting a lease for any type of commercial or residential leasing situation.  An important service we provide is explaining complex legal issues to clients in an easy to understand manner.  We also litigate lease disputes and handle commercial unlawful detainer actions (evictions).
