The Good Leasing Guidelines for Commercial Tenants

Businesses are costly. When an owner or franchisee builds out their location, they usually do not think that their landlord could have the ability to prevent them from selling their establishment, relocate them (at their cost), or terminate their lease at their discretion. In Lewis Gelmon’s seminar, members from your organization will learn how the value of their business is directly tied to having a good lease. Lewis Gelmon’s, “The Good Leasing Guidelines for Commercial Tenants” is a fast paced, interactive educational seminar which will provide owners and franchisees with the right knowledge and tools they need when dealing with their tenant lease and landlord to gain peace of mind.

Simply a great course… a wealth of information. It provided me with the confidence to ask my landlord the right questions. In the end, I saved a lot of money.
