"Proactive defense is best defense..." article from Saturday, Feb. 7th
February 9, 2009 - Gary Tasman
Annual statistics compiled by the Lee County Sheriff's office shows an overall drop in crime in 2008; compared to 2007, the overall crime rate is down more than nine (9) percent county-wide.
That's the good news but once a break-in or any other type of on-site theft occurs, there's not much that an owner can do or is legally obligated to do. Usually, leases will specify that landlords are not responsible for any sort of damage or loss inside the tenant's space. This leaves the ball squarely in the tenant's court.
In my Saturday article I outline several ways a lessee can protect their business and a few ways an owner or landlord can also protect their income property against brake-ins and theft.
The bottom line is that owners and tenants should treat their commercial space like their home.
If you would like to see the entire article from Saturday you can email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org and I would be happy to send you a copy. I appreciate all the comments and suggestions that come to me by phone, email and threw the blog.
And please keep reading my column in the Saturday edition of Daily Cape Coral Breeze, thank you.
