Commercial leases

Question: "What are the consequences of not providing an appropriate disclosure document for a retail tenancy?"

Answer: The tenant may not have to pay rent and may be able to terminate the lease.

Question:"Why bother doing a title search of the property - I know who owns the land anyway?"

Answer: Apart from the very real possibility that the wrong person or entity is named as landlord, it is also necessary to ensure that any mortgagee has consented to the lease.  Unless the mortgagee has done so, if the mortgagee enters into possession of the land then it can effectively ignore the lease and force the tenant from the land so that it can sell with vacant possession.
