Our Tenant Lease Services
In Pennsylvania, leases are required for a tenant to rent either a residential or commercial space. Though leases can be written or oral, it is probably best to make sure a lease is written. In the event of a legal issue, it may be difficult to go to court relying solely on an oral lease. A written lease can hold more value because the terms are written therein, and both the tenant and landlord are bound by the terms they agreed to in the lease contract. They typically include information regarding the duration of the lease, whether the lease will be month-to-month or on a yearly basis, who will pay the utilities, who will make repairs, terms of eviction, and more. It is important that all terms are agreed to in the contract before signing. An experienced real estate attorney can review the lease before the tenant signs it to ensure that all provisions are fair and legal. Some of the different types of tenant lease transactions the attorneys at Friedman Schuman are experienced in handling include:
- Residential leases
- Commercial leases
- Breaking a lease
- Tenant rights
- Changes or modifications to leases
