  • The “Permissible Use” clause and retaining control over the type of business
  • Assignment and sublet provisions
  • Signage provisions
  • Structuring the commercial tenant’s operating obligations in order to minimize disturbances
  • Maintaining the sidewalks
  • Tenant’s permissible alterations and the impact on residential tenants
  • Scaffolding issues
  • Remedies available to the residential tenants resulting from improper use of the commercial space
