FREE MODEL LEASE CLAUSE: Limit Tenant’s Right to Parking (from Best Commercial Lease Clauses, 9/e)
Without adequate parking at the property where they rent space, stores and offices couldn’t survive—and owners would quickly lose them. Providing parking seems as though it should be easy—just designate an area where cars can be parked on the property you own. But there are several factors that you need to take into account in order to provide adequate—and legal—parking for your tenants. And you want to make sure that a tenant can’t use the parking rights in its lease to block you from operating your lot the way you want to. Here’s a Model Lease Clause that you can adapt and use to spell out a tenant’s right to parking at your shopping center. Show this clause to your attorney before using it in your leases.
