What they said

Frequently asked questions

A commercial real estate lease review involves a transactional attorney reading through your lease and, if applicable, your letter of intent (LOI), and pointing out missing items, red flags, unusual provisions, concerns and/or general recommendations that you should consider before signing.

Our commercial real estate lease review service is designed to give you a clearer sense of the legal concerns relevant to your commercial real estate lease. We strive to demystify the provisions contained in your commercial real estate lease, and to give you confidence to either proceed or to ask the right question(s) to ensure that your position is fully understood and better protected.

Our lawyers carry out detailed reviews and provide commentary in simple terminology in the form of annotations within the document and/or in a separate document, via e-mail.

You can choose what to do with this advice. You can (a) ask an attorney to revise/edit the proposed agreement, (b) ask for follow-up advice regarding negotiation strategy, (c) use the feedback to negotiate directly with the other side and/or (d) engage an attorney to negotiate on your behalf.

Our reviews generally take between 1 to 3 working days, unless you place a special rush order.

If your commercial real estate lease has already been signed, and you are looking to get guidance on a specific situation that has arisen, we recommend that you submit a custom quote request.

This website is powered by AR | Legal Team, a Professional Law Corporation. Once your commercial real estate lease has been reviewed and you would like additional assistance from one of our transactional real estate attorneys, you may request a custom quote here on this site. Attorneys can negotiate revisions on your behalf and/or coach you through a negotiation from behind the scenes. 

A commercial real estate lease review (by itself) does not include revisions or edits, unless specifically stated in your package.  Many packages on our Services page include revisions! If you need a custom quote, just ask!
