Drafting and Review of Lease Agreements

Scott Williams Law Real Estate Lawyers

We assist landlords in drafting leases for their properties. We also review leases on behalf of lessees prior to lease execution and help them to understand their obligations and to answer any questions that they may have.

 More generally, as real-estate lawyers, we help with:

  • Customized Lease Agreement Drafting. On behalf of property owners and property-management clients, we draft lease agreements that comprehensively cover all necessary details, including rent, security deposits, lease duration, maintenance responsibilities, and other vital terms, striving to build a solid foundation for the landlord-tenant relationship.
  • Detailed Review of Lease Terms. We offer a detailed lease review for clients and help clients understand their rights and obligations.
  • Risk Identification and Mitigation. In reviewing and drafting lease agreements, we pay close attention to identifying and mitigating risks. This involves addressing potential areas of dispute, such as property damage, late payments, and lease-termination conditions, to prevent future conflicts and legal challenges.
  • Clear Communication and Explanation. We believe in clear communication and take the time to explain the terms and implications of the lease agreements to our clients. Whether our clients are landlords or tenants, we want them to fully understand their rights and obligations under the lease.
  • Negotiation Assistance. Our services also include assisting clients in negotiating lease terms with commercial leases—this can include build-out provisions and renewal-rights matters. We strive to achieve a balance that meets our clients’ needs while maintaining a fair and harmonious landlord-tenant relationship.
  • Ongoing Support and Advice. Beyond the initial drafting and review, we offer ongoing support and advice to our clients throughout the duration of the lease. This enables them to have legal guidance available whenever lease-related issues or questions arise.

In providing these services, we aim to create a secure and legally sound environment for residential leasing, striving to ensure that both landlords and tenants are well-informed and protected throughout their leasing arrangement. Our comprehensive approach to residential lease agreements reflects our commitment to delivering top-tier legal support in the Indiana real-estate market.
