Real Estate Attorney Jacksonville Florida

Starting a business is an excellent opportunity for you to put the knowledge and skill you have acquired over the years to good use. Rather than making money for other people, you will finally have a chance to build your own franchise, acquire wealth and prosperity for yourself, and leave your own mark and brand in the industry that you work in.

Most of your capital and energy should be focused on developing and expanding your core business. You should be as cost-effective as you can regarding overhead costs, which is why it is a good idea for the moment to lease a space rather than buy one. You must, however, ensure that you get the best deal possible; and you must guard against all efforts to extract more money out of you through vague, obscure, or questionable clauses in the lease.

Your business may require you to take out a number of commercial leases. You should sign none of them without having the terms and conditions looked over by a real estate attorney Jacksonville FL.

Even if everything seems good in the beginning, not every landlord is scrupulous and consistent. Too many of them believe they can take advantage of small business owners and engage in certain legal maneuvers that seem correct and unassailable, but which are, in fact, quite easy to fight.

Lindell Farson & Zebouni, P.A. is the kind of real estate attorney Jacksonville FL that you want on your side if you have to deal with such landlords. The attorneys at Lindell Farson & Zebouni, P.A. can provide you with advice, counsel, and representation in matters involving tenant improvement deductions, automatic rent increases, the passing on of landlord operating costs, party clauses, term clauses, premises clause descriptions, use and exclusives clauses, insurance clauses, and many other such matters.

Most of these issues can be settled without going to court. However, you may need to engage in litigation of one kind or another to ensure that you are not forced to pay more money that was agreed to and that you are not forced from the space before the expiration of  commercial leases. Contact our office today to discuss your contract and the next best step.
