Environmental Issues

“Above-ground” risks - such as asbestos-containing

materials or lead pipes used in construction.

Hazardous materials - e.g. dry cleaning chemicals,

motor oil, that have been stored in the ground.

Retailers’ Protection

Stipulate in the lease that the lessor is responsible for removal and disposal of this material if it’s found.

Retailer can buy insurance that specifically protects it from these risks.


Other Legal Issues

Zoning and Building Codes

Zoning determines how a particular site can be used.

Building codes determine the type of building, signs, size, type of parking lot, etc. that can be used


Restrictions on the use of signs can also impact a particular site’s desirability

Licensing Requirements

Some areas may restrict or require a license for alcoholic beverages
