What do commercial landlords need?
Often the value of a commercial lease is determined as much by the terms of the lease itself as the due diligence done by the landlord or its counsel before the signing of the lease.
To help ensure the performance of a commercial tenant through the term of a lease, the landlord or its counsel should obtain all of the following items before the signing of the lease:
Security deposit and as much advance rent as possible
Financial records/tax returns for the corporate tenant and guarantor
Credit check for the corporate tenant and guarantor
Personal guaranty of the principal of the tenant
Copy of driver’s license of guarantor
Tenant’s insurance policy covering damage to property - - not just declarations page
Contractor’s insurance policy covering damage to property - - not just declarations page
