Commercial Landlord Tenant Law

Since 1897, the attorneys at Reid & Hellyer have provided high-quality legal services and legal representation for clients in Southern California's real estate industry, including those involved in commercial landlord tenant disputes.

The laws governing commercial leases in California are complex and vary dramatically from those governing residential leases, particularly with evictions. Many businesses and business principals often base decisions on what they assume is the law due to their experience with residential law. This can lead to a costly mistake that can lead to their business and/or property being at stake in a legal dispute.

Reid & Hellyer's real estate litigation attorneys are skilled in all aspects of commercial landlord-tenant law in the state of California. As well as drafting and reviewing commercial leases for clients, we provide litigation and mediation services for property owners, property managers and commercial tenants in landlord-tenant disputes involving:

  • Eviction papers
  • Estoppel certificates
  • 3 day notices for breach of lease
  • Improper CAM charges

  • Foreclosure notices
