Personal Guaranty

It is advised for any landlord that the tenant sign a personal guaranty in case the business is not profitable. For most major entities, this is not needed, but a typical landlord will be “fitting up” the space and usually will not expect a return until the tenant has been occupying the property for some time.


Authorization

It is advised that any commercial lease be signed in the presence of a notary public to protect each party.
