Exclusivity Clause In Lease Agreement

Eu Green Agreement
Federal Circuit Court Binding Financial Agreement

It is important to note that these recommendations do not affect the terms of use in which the lessor regulates the products or services that a tenant may offer. From our point of view, the use clauses play an extremely important role in managing the behavior of tenants and in ensuring that the center offers a quality offer to its customers. Let`s say you have a big tenant like Safeway negotiating their lease. They want an exclusivity clause that bans low-cost bargain merchants like Dollar General on the mall site. They don`t want shoppers to just buy their perishables from Safeway and then walk around the parking lot to fill dollar General`s crates buying dry goods and staples at lower prices. This is a reasonable request, and if you refuse it, you will probably have a generous rental fee. However, any exclusive right of use granted to a tenant impairs the owner`s ability to lease other land. For example, what a consumer might think is a matter of „office supplies“, is actually a business that generates considerable revenue from the sale of computers and computer goods and the sale of copy services. Any national retailer of „office supplies“ requires the exclusive right to sell computers, software, computer accessories and copying services. Leasing would be prohibited to consumer electronics companies, equipment distributors (who almost always sell computer equipment) and parcel centres that usually have photocopiers. A toy store may not be able to sell video games for „children“. A card store may not have a single comfortable photocopier. It is important that you do not neglect the usage clause and that it limits your ability to expand your practice.

For example, language like „only for general dentistry and not for other applications“ is not only unnecessary and restrictive, but could also prevent you from adding another specialization to your practice. An exclusive use clause is defined as a provision in a commercial lease agreement that prohibits a lessor from renting to another tenant for the same commercial purpose as the existing tenant. Exclusivity clauses are most common in shopping malls, but can be included in any commercial lease. These clauses are important to the success of many small businesses and should be carefully considered and developed to avoid infringement. An effective exclusivity clause protects the tenant and future income by limiting or avoiding direct competitors in a given environment, whether on the same site or including adjacent real estate owned by the same owner….
