Commercial leases are often complicated, as the stakes are high for each party. A tenant needs the right space to operate its business and a landlord needs reliable tenants to cover its expenses and earn a profit. When tenants cease paying rent and vacate or are evicted, actions by landlords to collect unpaid rent ensue.
