Florida Commercial Lease Agreement | PDF – MS Word
A Florida commercial lease agreement is used to legally bind a tenant into a rental arrangement for an office, retail, or industrial space. It is standard with commercial leases for the landlord to fit the space with a “vanilla box” layout that may be altered by the tenant according to the company’s needs. Since both parties may be investing a significant amount of money into the property, the lease term will often be longer than a standard, residential contract. Landlords are advised to screen every applicant to ensure that they have a good rental history and that their business is in good standing with the Secretary of State. It is also a good idea to have the signatures on the contract notarized to better protect both parties.
