What is a real estate lease (WA)?
What is the real purpose of a real estate lease?
Like all good contracts, the purpose of a lease is first, to reduce risk. You achieve this by having a lease in the first place. But you also need a lease that deals with known issues. Too often we see leases that are silent on common areas for disputes. Such leases are high risk and often result in court action.
After that, the goal is to transfer risk to the tenant. The lease must be clear in its terms and who is and is not responsible for what. Therefore, the lease must be precise in its drafting. It should not create scope for the tenant to find holes.
