Drafting and Negotiating Real Estate Leases
This course introduces students to the process of drafting and negotiating real estate leases. It begins by providing an overview of the commercial lease process, including differences between different types of commercial leases and the junior associate’s role in a commercial lease transaction. The course then explores preliminary concepts, such as common terms, associated tasks that occur before and after drafting, and the form of lease required in the transaction. Lastly, the course explores the key provisions of a lease agreement, beginning with a broad view of the structure of a typical commercial lease, and the provisions contained in the lease summary, lease body, and the exhibits and addenda included in a commercial lease.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Explain the commercial lease process.
- Identify common types of commercial leases.
- Review a legal document request form and incorporate the provisions into a form lease amendment.
- Understand the junior associate’s role in the lease drafting and negotiation process.
