Estoppel Certificates

In commercial real estate it’s not uncommon to come across estoppel certificates, especially when a property is being sold?  What are they, and why do landlords require them?

Estoppel certificates are documents required by lenders to assure the rights of all parties involved are properly documented.  An estopped certificate is a certification from a landlord and a tenant that outlines the terms and conditions of the lease.
