Lease Drafting & Review

Utilizing a what could go wrong approach, we draft and review lease agreements with an eye toward preventing litigation in the future. Sometimes, litigation is unavoidable. In those situations, a clear and concise contract will only serve to benefit our clients. A strong lease, which protects the client, but at the same time is fair to the tenant, is the cornerstone of the landlord/tenant relationship. The Firm provides a full range of services in this area. From a cursory review of lease documents to a comprehensive audit, the Firm is available to assist its clients in revising their documents to better protect themselves.

The Firm’s lease services are based on our substantial experience in landlord-tenant law. No Colorado law Firm evicts more tenants, handles more tenant litigation, or has more constant exposure to leases and lease issues than Tschetter Sulzer. The Firm provides a wide variety of lease services for multi-family, single-family, and commercial property management clients. There are a number of considerations in deciding which of our many lease services may be right for you. There is no such thing as the perfect lease. The “perfect lease” and the “one size fits all lease” are myths. There is only the perfect lease for a specific client. Even if a lease is ideally suited for a particular client, the lease is only perfect at the moment it was created for a variety of reasons.

  • The Law Changes
  • Company policy changes
  • Court rulings require changes
  • Tenants can and do raise endless scenarios and factual permutations

For these reasons, we always recommend having a “lease checkup” on an annual basis. A lease checkup is particularly effective when the client consistently keeps track of lease issues. Systematically tracking lease issues promotes a thoughtful and methodical evaluation as to whether changes are either desirable or warranted.
