At Oppenheim Law, our team of experienced attorneys understands the complexities of commercial lease agreements and the challenges that can arise when tenants breach the terms of their lease. This may include the commercial tenant fails to pay rent, fails to not abide by rules and regulations of the building, or violates any other provision within the Florida commercial lease.
A common breach by a tenant in a commercial lease is failing to pay rent. In Florida, commercial landlords have the right to take legal action against tenants who fail to pay rent, including eviction proceedings.
Another common breach by a commercial tenant is not operating their workplace within the terms of their commercial lease. Many commercial leases, for instance, include clauses that dictate when a tenant’s business can be open and operate. Depending upon the language in the commercial lease, , landlords may have grounds to terminate the commercial tenant’s lease and potentially seek damages.
Further, commercial tenants may also breach their commercial lease agreements by not abiding by the general rules and regulations of the building. Many commercial leases include clauses that dictate how tenants must conduct themselves and maintain their space. When a tenant fails to abide by these rules and regulations, commercial landlords may have grounds to terminate the lease and seek damages.
Violating use clauses is another way tenants can breach their lease agreements. Many commercial leases include clauses that dictate how the tenant’s space can be used. For example, a tenant might be prohibited from using their space for a certain type of business or activity. When a commercial tenant violates these use clauses, issues typically arise for the landlord and other commercial tenants in the building. As a result, commercial landlords may have grounds to terminate the commercial lease and seek damages.
