Understanding the Distinctions Between Commercial and Residential Landlord-Tenant Law in Sarasota
Generally speaking, commercial landlord-tenant relationships are relatively similar to residential landlord-tenant relationships in which the landlord owns property that is rented to the tenant through a lease agreement. In both commercial and residential leases, grounds for termination often include a breach of one or more of the terms of the lease agreement by one or both parties.
However, there are also important distinctions between commercial and residential landlord-tenant law. For example, commercial tenants are business owners who are occupying the space in order to conduct business in some capacity. Since tenants are business owners, not only can they be harmed by a commercial landlord’s breach of contract, but they can also suffer business losses for which a commercial landlord may be liable.
Grounds for Terminating a Commercial Lease
There are different grounds for terminating a commercial lease lawfully. In most cases, lawful termination of a commercial lease is possible when there is a breach of a lease condition or a violation of the law. In general, there are both monetary and non-monetary grounds for terminating a lease.
Monetary grounds for lease termination typically occur when one of the parties fails to meet a financial obligation. In most cases, this is a commercial tenant’s failure to pay rent. There are also many different non-monetary grounds for lease termination, such as the commercial landlord’s breach of covenant of quiet enjoyment, or a landlord’s failure to make necessary repairs on the property.
