The Florida Third District Court of Appeals in Sunshine Gasoline Distributors, Inc. v. Biscayne Enterprises, Inc. issued an Opinion filed on March 26, 2014 ruling that a Trial Court was correct in entering a judgment for a lessor because the lease and the modification of the lease contained unambiguous conditions regarding the lessees’ right to renew upon the written approval of the lessor.
Too often the attorneys at Booth & Cook visit with clients that have entered into commercial leases without having them reviewed by legal counsel, only to subsequently discover that the form they used was deficient in one matter or the other. In the event a landlord is required to enforce a commercial lease in a court of law, the landlord is usually well served when their lease was negotiated and prepared with the benefit of legal counsel. At Booth & Cook our attorneys have the necessary experience in real state transactions and litigation to help navigate a commercial landlord through the process of setting up a commercial lease that properly watches the back of the landlord.
