by: Scott Jaunich & Kane Smart

Are there any statutory or legal disclosures required by the landlord or the tenant either at the beginning or end of the lease term?

Must a memorandum of lease be recorded for a lease to be enforceable against third parties?

Co-authored by real estate and land use attorney Scott Jaunich and energy and telecommunications counsel Kane Smart, this Q&A addresses these and other questions related to state laws and customs that impact commercial leasing, including:

  • the execution and enforceability of leases
  • disclosures
  • transfer taxes
  • rents and security deposits
  • permitted assignments
  • financings and remedies. 

Federal, local or municipal law may impose additional or different requirements.
