Get Right to Remove Tenants’ Signs Temporarily During Construction Work
Disputes are apt to arise when temporarily covering or removing a tenant’s storefront sign becomes necessary for the landlord to carry out building work. Tenants have an obvious interest in keeping their signage clear, visible, and unobstructed by scaffolding and such, especially during business hours. But landlords have an equally legitimate need to do what must be done to make necessary repairs, renovations, and improvements. The good news is that you can reconcile these interests fairly and head off disputes by specifically addressing temporary signage removal in your lease.
