Landlords and tenants should negotiate a lessee’s right to sublease the premises given the volatile nature of a commercial tenant’s business operations. The planning above does NOT account for non-real property.


Parties should NOT rely on courts to construe better bargains than those the lease provides. Net leases often protect the landlord’s interests. Regarding net leases, parties should distinguish between expenses for the entire property and for proportionate shares of the property. The lease should describe specific uses a party may utilize the property.


Increasingly, tenants and landlords understand (especially due to Covid 19 pandemic) with have well-thought out, carefully planned for, meticulously drafted, diligently scrutinized and legally executable and self-enforceable lease contract agreements.


The law as it pertains to lease contracts in New Jersey, may have changed and/or continue to evolve, during the legal changes brought on by Covid 19.  It is perhaps worth mentioning that even before the spread of the Coronavirus in the U.S., New Jersey Landlord/Tenant laws and real property leasing laws, were considered highly esoteric and by many were a sign of a much need legal reform.


To better assist in a quest of further analyzing this type of question(s) as revolving per this legal guide article, it may be useful to make additional inquiries, such as: Should any pertaining lease documents be filed as a public recordation?  Is it possible to make a county-specific public recordation of the pertaining lease documents? Is it permissible to have the lease be freely assignable?
