Negotiate Hazardous Materials Cleanup with Medical Tenant
Medical office tenants may pose environmental and safety risks if they generate hazardous materials and medical waste. Contamination of space can be a nightmare for you, but you can ameliorate this by requiring the tenant to return the space in the same condition that it was in when the tenant first got it. While you should leave room for the typical “ordinary wear and tear” caveat, it’s crucial to say in the lease that the tenant must leave the space uncontaminated. If you don’t carefully negotiate this, you could be left paying for the cleanup effort.
