A commercial real estate lease agreement in the Florida Keys will be crucial as a real estate investor. They can be, and should be, far more complicated that a lease on a residential unit. These must be handled with caution and we always suggest getting professional legal advice before signing a commercial lease agreement in the Keys.
You will want to be careful to consider the following questions:

  • How do you feel about sublease situations? Are you willing to allow the tenant to sublease your Florida Keys commercial property?
  • Will you allow your tenant to have exclusivity on the type of business on your commercial property in the Keys? For example, if one tattoo studio rents one unit, would you allow a different tattoo shop to rent another unit in the same building?
  • How will you handle alterations on your commercial property? Would you allow tenants to move walls? Some landlords don’t even allow a fresh coat of paint without permission. Where will you fit in?
  • If something happens making the unit not up to code, how will you ensure that your tenant’s business doesn’t suffer undue hardship?
