What are common commercial lease disputes?

A commercial lease is a legally binding contract under Ontario’s Commercial Tenancies Act that protects both the tenant and the landlord. There are rights and responsibilities contained in a lease that, if abused or ignored, may be grounds for termination. Disputes can arise between landlords and tenants but because a lease is legally binding, breaking it is not necessarily a simple matter. There must be an agreement between the landlord and the tenant to terminate the contract early. If not, legal action can follow.

There are many common commercial lease disputes. They include failing to pay rent; property damage or property in disrepair in violation of the lease; operating expenses and fees charged over and above the base rent amount, or subleasing the property in violation of the terms of the lease.

Why you need a lawyer

Even though you may feel justified in breaking a commercial lease, it is important to recognize that you entered into that contract willingly and the court will expect you to live up to your obligations if there is a dispute. The same holds true if someone invalidates the terms of your agreement. Contracts can be complex and confusing, so it is never wise to assume that your interpretation of a lease is correct. There may be costs and penalties for terminating the contract so do not take a chance on your future. Our commercial lease dispute lawyers at Chand & Co. possess a diversity of experience to guide you through the process. We can review your lease to identify the applicable legal issue to help you develop a sound strategy to resolve it, which may include alternative dispute resolution. Remember, we are at your side, ready to litigate on your behalf.
