Lease Review and Negotiations - perhaps the most important area of concern for a restaurateur is the lease and the many legal and operational nuances in it.  The is no substitute for an experienced restaurant lease lawyer who will read every word of the document that often runs to 70 pages or more. There are many places for hidden bombs that can blow up your business; building department violations, old equipment leases, mechanics liens, environmental concerns, American Disability Act liabilities, ansul systems, grease trap cleaning, good guy guarantees, water meters, tax base years and rations - the list is almost endless and each issue is dollars. In a restaurant lease negotiation, you need Novar's trusted counsel.
