Florida Commercial Lease Agreement – Microsoft Word
Download and complete the Florida commercial lease agreement for a landlord to legally bind a tenant into a rental arrangement for retail, office, or industrial space. It is standard in a commercial lease to have the landlord create a “vanilla box” layout for the amount of space (usually by square foot (SF)) being rented. There term is usually around three (3) years as both parties will be investing more money than a standard residential agreement.
It is advised for any landlord to have the tenant personally guaranty the contract in the case the tenant wants to have the entity be on the agreement. This will give the power to the landlord and security that if the business being operated ever should not be able to pay rent that the person’s assets are available to legally pursue.
If the agreement is for any long term arrangement or if the property requires a costly fit up before the tenant should occupy the space it is a good idea to have the signatures notarized to better protect both parties.
