Navigating Connecticut Commercial Landlord-Tenant Litigation
By: Philip C. Pires
In the bustling world of commercial real estate, productive landlord-tenant relationships are often the cornerstone of successful real estate enterprises. However, even the most amicable relationships can face challenges that evolve into disputes. Commercial disputes often differ substantially from residential disputes due to the complexity of commercial leases and the larger sums of money involved. As a commercial landlord, understanding your rights and the litigation process is crucial to protect your investments and effectively navigate such challenges.
Types of Commercial Landlord-Tenant Disputes
Commercial leases are often intricate, with terms and conditions tailored to unique business needs. Disputes can emerge related to:
- Rent Arrears: Claims regarding unpaid rent or disputes over the rent amount or common area maintenance (CAM) charges.
- Maintenance Issues: Disagreements over who is responsible for repairs or maintenance can escalate quickly.
- Lease Violations: Breaches of the lease, such as unauthorized subletting or using the property for unapproved purposes.
- End of Lease Disputes: Issues related to property damage, or disputes over the return of deposits.
