Negotiating and Drafting Restaurant Leases
Tenant Improvements, Franchises, Mixed Use, Parking, Clean-up Equipment and More
A live 90-minute CLE webinar with interactive Q&A
This CLE webinar will focus on drafting and negotiating key provisions of restaurant leases. The panel will discuss how best to address special concerns with a restaurant use, tenant improvements, franchise relationships, operational issues in mixed use developments, and issues applicable to tenants generally.
- Restaurant tenants generally: distinguishing features
- Tenant improvements/buildout provisions
- Allocation of responsibility between landlord and tenant
- Equipment and furnishings—lender rights upon lease or loan default
- Franchised (chain) restaurants—rights of franchisor upon default under lease or franchise
- Scrubbers, grease traps, environmental concerns
- Other provisions: co-tenancy, go dark, termination provisions, parking, options to renew, insurance
- Subordination, non-disturbance and attornment agreements
The panel will review these and other key issues:
- How do the operational aspects of a restaurant impact provisions in a restaurant lease?
- Given the expense of a restaurant buildout, how might financing arrangements impact the lease?
- How might a franchise affect the notice and assignment provisions of a restaurant lease?
- What environmental or nuisance concerns should be addressed in a restaurant lease?
- What special concerns exist in a mixed use development and how might they be reflected in the lease?
