Attorney Sean Byrne has extensive experience negotiating retail leases, and he can help you protect yourself against the common and unusual issues that arise in the retail context. What happens if the landlord is foreclosed by its lender? Is your lease subject to a non-disturbance agreement? Is the lease recorded? What if zoning is not proper? Whose responsibilities are certain systems or improvements if required during the lease, such as fire suppression or HVAC replacement? Does the landlord know of anticipated construction re-configuring traffic patterns to your detriment? Is there sufficient parking? What advertising and signage are allowed? Attorney Sean Byrne has both the legal training and the business experience to have helped clients address each of these issues and dozens more.
The breadth of real estate engagements Attorney Sean Byrne has handled include: commercial and residential leasing; fractional ownership transactions; property tax assessment challenges; representing developers, unit owners and directors of home owners associations; new build and remodel home construction; and acquisitions and sales of properties.
