Here are three ways to protect your position as master lessee during the lease period:
1. Record a memorandum of lease, like the sample in Chapter 5, to give the public constructive notice that you have a leasehold interest in the property.
2. Buy a leasehold owner's title insurance policy to insure your leasehold interests—rights of possession and use of the premises—as provided for in your master lease agreement.
3. Buy a general liability insurance policy to cover you in the event that someone files a lawsuit for alleged damages sustained while on your leased property.
