ground lease size

by Lou

SBA has a land lease on my property for a 60 ft x 60 ft area
The security fence is 60 ft x 60 ft and contains the tower and buildings.
However they are using an additional 20 ft around the leased property to park vehicles and provide power to the site.
Is this legal to use property other that the leased 60 x 60 ft area?

Lou, can't give you legal advice, but take a look at your lease exhibits or construction drawings. It may indicate a 60'x60' footprint for the leased compound or "Premises", they usually indicate an access easement and turn around area for vehicles.

You can always send them a default letter and let their attorney's respond and they will provide you their legal explanation.
