Acquiring a new group of retail stores or restaurants can be an exciting and lucrative business venture. However, it is crucial to pay close attention to the leases for each property during the due diligence process, as they can impact the outcomes of the acquisition.

Imagine buying a chain of 50 restaurants only to find out that twenty percent of the leases have expired or the option notice dates have passed. Worse yet, the landlord already signed new leases for some of the spaces. The considerable investment you just made may provide significantly less income as a result of not completing your due diligence. This is a situation no buyer wants to find themselves in.
