Many times tenants are sent 1 page real estate documents that their landlord wants returned immediately, such as Tenant Estoppel Agreements or Lease Commencement Date Letters where tenants are asked to confirm certain information about their leases. You should be mindful that these documents may have binding legal consequences. These documents are relied on by not only your landlord, but also lenders and buyers of property. If a new buyer takes title to the property and the tenant has affirmed that it is not owed any money, the tenant might have just lost its rights to an allowance or other moneys that the prior landlord still owes it. We advise that you read these documents carefully and to seek legal advice if you have any questions about your response.
