Sample Law Paper on Commercial Lease

Below you will find sample Articles from a commercial lease for review. This is not a complete commercial lease, but only relevant portions. Keep in mind, most commercial leases are 25-­‐100 pages long, with dozens of Articles and provisions. This assignment is designed to assess your understanding of the terms required in leases under the law. This will also test your ability to identify lease terms that either clearly violate landlord/tenant duties and rights under the law, or are just unconscionable (courts will generally not uphold/enforce leases or contracts that contain terms that are wholly unfair to one party in favor of the other). Please read the lease carefully, identifying the issues within the terms. Each section has one term that requires discussion. Explain each issue, why it is a “violation” and whether or not you think the court would uphold the lease term, strike it from the lease, or use that term to void the lease completely. You are playing judge in this assignment. This assignment should be 1-­‐2 pages in length, double spaced.
