When a retail store closes its doors or discontinues operations at a specific site, it is considered a “dark store.” Without proper upkeep, these locations can be extremely harmful to the reputation of neighboring retailers and the local community. Poorly maintained dark stores can also expose property owners and tenants to increased liability or decreased property value.
CORE TEAM offers professional retail facilities maintenance solutions that keep your dark store well-maintained, fully operational, and routinely inspected to ensure minimal negative impact. Further, our full menu of services will prepare the property for lease termination in accordance with the lease terms.
Lease Turnover Support
When a commercial lease comes to an end, the underlying question is: “What condition must the leased property be in when possession is returned to the landlord?”
In some cases, all leasehold improvements made by the tenant would remain and become the property of the landlord. The tenant may then only be required to remove personal property and return the premises in a clean, well maintained condition. In other cases, the tenant may be obligated to return the property in the same condition in which it was originally delivered to the tenant at the commencement of the lease. For example, if the property was a ‘vanilla shell,’ any and all build outs, modifications, or improvements throughout the course of occupancy may require significant demolition and removal.
Whether it’s basic maintenance, or complete demolition, the solution specialists at CORE TEAM have the expertise to help close out your lease obligations accurately and efficiently.
