This is the final blog in our series on Oklahoma commercial landlord and tenant law.  In the last article, we discussed the major differences between a residential and a commercial lease.  The distinction is important to note because the rules governing these tenancies can be starkly different.  Following the correct rule and notice requirements are crucial to a successful outcome if the matter ends up in court.

Although many landlord-tenant issues are resolved through effective communication.  But sometimes the communication breaks down and the matter gets out of hand.  If you are an Oklahoma Landlord who is dealing with any issue with a commercial tenant we are here to help.  Contact us online or by telephone to get in touch with an Oklahoma City real estate attorney and speak to a landlord-tenant lawyer.

Some of the topics that we covered in this series are:

I chose these topics for many reasons.  Firstly, there seems to be some confusion in distinguishing between a residential and a commercial eviction process.  Although both types of proceedings are outlined under Title 41, Landlord and Tenant Section, there are important distinctions. For example, in some situations, a 10-day notice may be required to terminate a commercial tenant while on the residential side, a 5-day notice is required.  I discuss various issues including the grounds for commercial eviction, notice requirements, and the accompanying legal proceeding.

Secondly, proper notice is an essential part of any landlord and tenant proceedings.  An otherwise solid case may be thrown out by the judge because of a defective notice.  This is particularly important if there is no lease to outline the various rights and duties of a commercial landlord and tenant.  I dedicated a whole blog to discussing the various notices that are required under certain circumstances.

Thirdly, not all commercial leases are reduced to a written agreement or prepared by attorneys.  Oftentimes landlords find themselves in a situation where they would like to regain possession of the property or bring legal proceedings against a non-paying tenant.  But not having a written lease makes the task just a tad bit more difficult.  I aim to educate landlords on the legal steps involved in terminating the lease where there is no written agreement.

Lastly, as mentioned above there are important differences between a commercial and a residential lease.  Although there are some similarities between the rules governing the two types of tenancies, it’s important to know the procedural differences.  My article on the topic defines and differentiates a commercial property from its residential counterpart.  It delves into the confusing yet very important notice requirements involved in both tenancy types.
