Real Property Lease Checklist


Real Property Lease Checklist

Updated on Jan 13, 2017

The Real Property Lease Checklist addresses the most common issues that you need to consider when you negotiate a real property lease. This comprehensive checklist identifies the terms and clauses that need to be addressed in a real property lease. It also contains questions under each term or clause that flush out the most important issues pertaining to that term or clause. It's a good tool to use when you have a real property lease in hand from the property owner and you want to know whether the lease covers all that it should cover so that you're properly protected. Of course, you should also have your attorney review the lease.

The file contains a three-page document in rich text format (RTF) that is suitable for use with most word processing programs used in a Windows environment. 


Special Features:

Included are:

  • clauses and contract terms that should be addressed, such as taxes and expenses, termination, and lease improvements.
  • issues relating to those clauses and terms that pertain to the lessor, lessee, or both.

Toolkit is providing these tools free of charge. Some of these forms contain technical language and create significant legal obligations. Do not use any form without first having an attorney review the form and determine that it is suitable for the purpose for which you intend it.
