University of Maryland leases several properties

A private foundation operated by University of Maryland officials has leased several pieces of commercial real estate in College Park. UMD plans to use the commercial properties, which are valued at over $20 million, to open a string of restaurants, shops and apartments. The university foundation reportedly worked with the city to come up with a plan for the commercial real estate transactions.

Why Maryland businesses rely on commercial leases

Modern firms have unique requirements for the disposition and handling of critical assets, like business properties and other real estate. Companies that operate out of storefronts, warehousing facilities or manufacturing centers may find it necessary to draft customized lease agreements or amendments in order to maintain acceptable revenue streams and avoid litigation. Our commercial leasing firm works hard to prepare businesses for undesirable lease outcomes by providing the representation and consultation they need to try to make effect asset management decisions.
