Hollis, NH asked in Real Estate Law for New Hampshire

Q: For commercial office leasing space if landlord wants one check BUT there are several tenants responsible...

is it better to ask for all names to be on the lease or use a separate contract between the 4 tenants so the one who actually signs the lease is not 100% responsible. Thanks

A: I'm not sure I follow the question and I think anyone who wants to answer you will need more information.

- Four of you are renting commercial space, but there's no entity (LLC, Corp, etc.?) - just four individual people?

- Currently, only one of the four is named on the lease?

- There's no "operating agreement" or "partnership agreement" between you?
