Dealing With A Tenant’s Breach Of A Commercial Lease

Are you unsure how to deal with a tenant’s breach of a commercial lease? Unfortunately, many landlords will experience a tenant who defaults in their payment of rent or other obligations under a commercial lease. These landlords will find that they need to take action in order to deal with the default and to mitigate their losses. If you are a landlord and you do not follow the legal procedure, the tenant may end up taking legal action against you. The law is very specific about how a landlord must act when it seeks to enforce its rights against a tenant and gives tenants opportunities to counterclaim where procedures are not properly followed.
