Lease documents vary dramatically.
If you or the landlord are represented by a commercial broker, it is likely they will be using AIR forms. In that case there is a specific one for Multi-Tenant Retail. However, it is also a possibility that the landlord may have a custom drafted lease document.
Of these two types the AIR contract is likely to be the most neutral where as a custom drafted or lawyer drafted lease document is likely to be more heavily slanted to benefit the landlord.
If you are dealing with a custom drafted lease, you should definitely have the representation of an attorney or seasoned commercial broker to review and negotiate on your behalf.
