Mr. Ferruggia also maintains an active Landlord-Tenant practice.  Landlord-Tenant law is one of the most complicated and rules-driven areas of law.  My firm provides counsel to Landlords and Tenants.  Mr. Ferruggia can assist with the following: review/negotiation of lease agreements, amending a lease, negotiating an early termination of a lease, resolution of leasing disputes and more. 



Whether you are a landlord looking to lease a large-scale commercial property or a tenant seeking to rent a commercial space, apartment or single-family home, the lease is a critical legal document that should be closely examined before you sign on the dotted line.  Your lease agreement will set forth the rights and obligations of all parties to the rental contract; so, it is essential for you to make certain that you have a clear understanding of all terms and conditions discussed in the document.  We have extensive experience counseling clients in connection with all types of commercial leases.  We understand what the law demands and work directly with our clients to ensure that their rights are fully protected at every point in the process.  


It is also important to have an attorney review your commercial lease for the following reasons:


  1. Commercial leases can be complex legal documents.  An attorney can interpret the terms, explain their legal implications, and ensure that the lease complies with applicable local and state laws. 

  2. Protecting your interests.  An attorney can work with you to protect your interests.  An attorney can identify potential pitfalls, negotiate terms that are favorable to you and make sure that you aren’t agreeing to anything that might put you at a disadvantage. 

  3. Negotiation.  Commercial leases are often subject to negotiation.  An attorney can skillfully negotiate on your behalf to secure more favorable terms, whether it is related to rent, lease duration, or other clauses within the agreement.

  4. Customization.  An attorney can help you draft lease provisions that are specific to your business needs and align with your business goals.

  5. Risk mitigation.  An attorney can help you identify potential risks and liabilities and draft clauses to mitigate them.  This can include provisions related to property condition, maintenance responsibilities, insurance, and liability in case of unforeseen events. 

  6. Avoiding disputes.  By having a well-drafted lease, you can reduce the likelihood of disputes with your landlord.  In the event of a dispute, having a clear, legally sound lease can be invaluable in resolving the issue in your favor. 

  7. Peace of mind.  Having an attorney review your lease provides peace of mind, knowing that your interests are protected, and the lease is well-structured to meet your business needs.

In summary, having an attorney review your commercial lease is an investment in your business's future.  It can help you avoid costly legal disputes, protect your interests, and ensure that the lease agreement is tailored to your unique requirements.  It is a proactive step that can save you time, money, and stress in the long run.
