For example, you might be called upon by a client to draft such an agreement or to review an existing lease. Similarly, you might represent an investor who acquires commercial properties. More than likely, at some point you will be asked to review and comment on an existing commercial lease agreement in connection with one of the acquired properties, or you might have to prepare such an agreement in conjunction with an upcoming purchase. Alternatively, you might represent a client who is buying a home; however, there is a tenant in the home and you are given a lease agreement to review to determine when and how the tenant can be evicted.
