Shopping Mall Lease Dispute Lawyers

Top-Rated Commercial Real Estate Litigation Attorneys

Shopping malls or smaller retail spaces can be beneficial for both the landlords and tenants involved in this transaction. However, this type of property can lead to many disputes and poses unique challenges to both parties involved. At Antonoplos & Associates, we commonly assist clients with signage rights, pre-lease representations by landlords of mall traffic, and enforcing restrictions on competing businesses.

Those Affected by Shopping Mall Lease Disputes

Shopping mall leases often involve parties other than the landlord and tenant of the property. At Antonoplos & Associates, we advise and act for landlords, tenants, assignors, assignees, sub-lessors, sub-lessees, personal grantors, and others having an interest affected by or related to a shopping mall lease, such as business partners, franchisors, and joint venture parties.

If a lease includes terms for rent abatement, disputes may still arise over conditions such as:

  • Repairs and maintenance that restrict visibility or access to the leased premises
  • Changes to parking and common areas
  • Failure to repair or maintain the leased premises or common areas
  • Breaches of rights to quiet enjoyment
  • Loss of anchor tenants and co-tenancy requirements
Franchise disputes and litigation
