Society can be viewed in several different ways and it really depends on each individual and their perspective toward society. Not everyone’s right or wrong is the same and some may think things are the right way when other does not. When it comes to the law, despite people’s feelings or opinions, the laws and U.S. Supreme Court decisions take rule above all.

If we were to have a new tenant sign a lease and not have the correct wording on who takes care of what, it could possibly lose the owners money instead of make money. We recently took over management for some new properties and the previous Leasing Director had new tenants sign leases right when we were going to take over the management. What that Leasing Director did was signed the lease with the new tenant, made his commission and did the owners wrong. After tenant improvement construction costs and preventative maintenance costs, over the next three years of the lease, the owners will walk away making only $150.00. The Leasing Director was
