  1. John,
    Great advice. I rented space in AZ once where the “use” was defined as office and warehouse. We built the space out to include offices and a warehouse but also built a showroom for electronics we installed in new homes. We actually had a run-in with our property manager based on that. They had tried to make us take out the showroom as the lease did not formally permit it. Only by threatening to leave the space were we able to open discussions enough to get the showroom approved. If our broker had followed you advice, this would have been a non-issue.

      Thanks for your comment Mark. It is amazing how many times I hear stories like that. Use is one of the most important lease clauses, and that is probably why its usually on the first page.
