90. Lease CopiesBy Roger Bryan
Keeping copies of your lease is important for more reasons than one. Upon signing the lease on your office space and your broker submitting it to the landlord, the landlord will counter-sign the lease and the manager of the building will mail you back the signed copy.
You will usually need this lease on hand when contacting utility companies to apply for services such as electric, water, and gas.
The lease is also a good reference to confirm that you are continually in compliance with the terms of the lease such as allowed uses of the space.
