Retail Lease Agreement
(Long Form) (NY)


This is a form retail lease agreement may be used to lease space in a mixed-use building, shopping center, or stand-alone property in New York. This form contains practical guidance, drafting notes, alternate clauses, and optional clauses. Retail lease requirements vary by jurisdiction and customs and practices vary widely within the state of New York. A lease negotiation for space in New York City, where there is often a lot of inventory and leverage can sway between the landlord and tenant in reaction to the market, may differ from a lease negotiation in a rural or suburban part of the state, such as upstate New York, Long Island, or Westchester County. Local counsel should be engaged to ensure compliance with state law. For a general discussion on retail leases, please see Retail Lease Agreements.
