Commercial Leasing

Real Estate Development

Spring 2013

Marty Gold + Mitchell Nelson, instructors

This course looked at commercial leasing from both a landlord and tenant perspective. Both demand legal and business analysis of the most important provisions and issues in leasing today. The course provided a firm basis for understanding space leases as the revenue stream behind building operations, financing and profits while the allocation of risks was the underlying thread that tied these topics. The reading included clauses from standard leases and articles, as well as court decisions that illuminate the complexities and conflicts.
