What Happens Behind the Closed Doors at Your Office?

Is it appropriate to ask for a tenant's intended use of the commercial or residential space you are renting? This article highlights the need for thorough background investigations and clear terms of use for any lease agreement. Property managers/owners can avoid serious legal troubles and financial losses by employing competent investigators to verify an applicant's business, financial stability and the possibility the property is going to be used for illicit purposes.

What Happens Behind the Closed Doors at Your Office? A recent NY Post story highlights the purpose of tenant background checks. The landlord leases professional office spaces in Manhattan to businesses for “normal” office use.  However, as the news article indicates, the landlord neglected to use experienced investigators to perform detailed background investigations on the prospective tenants and their business’ validity.  Saving a few dollars before renting the space may have seemed like a prudent option, but as we can now see, the cost of evicting the seedy tenants and pacifying the other displeased tenants will surely be the more costly result.

Comments Off

MTV’s show reveals participants who lied about their identity and then tells how these lies stemmed from boredom and loneliness.
