Commercial Leasing

A commercial lease brings together elements of a contract and a transaction. To have a valid lease, there must be agreement about the parties, the premises to be leased, the commencement and duration of the term, the rent, and all material contract terms. A lease must generally be in writing. There are three main kinds of leases —industrial, office and retail leases.

Leases typically start with a preliminary offer to lease a space on certain conditions. For instance, a tenant may need to verify that zoning will accommodate an intended use, or that the building structure can be modified in required ways. A lawyer can help you determine what type of commitments to make at this point. This document should also outline a process for concluding the matter. Once conditions are met, a landlord usually provides a draft lease and the parties will negotiate until a deal is reached.
