Although commercial leasing is a common affair, it’s very important for the owner as well as the tenant involved, to be fully aware of the process of leasing a commercial property. Before going any further, it’s important you understand the ‘what’, ‘why’, and ‘how’ aspects of commercial leasing.
Here are a few points that you should keep in mind while hunting for a commercial property or leasing it out to another.
Meaning of Commercial Lease
Commercial lease is an agreement between the owner and the potential tenant, where the former’s property is leased out for commercial usage. It could imply either leasing of an office space, or an industrial or commercial building. It includes certain rules and regulations that the tenant has to agree with, in order to avail the commercial property.
The tenants who want to use the commercial space for business purposes cannot partake in any illegal activities in the workplace rented by them. Although this agreement doesn’t have a standard form, it can follow any structure as long as it covers the important aspects of the agreement.
What the Owner Should Know Before Leasing Out the Property
While renting out a property to a potential tenant, the owner should have a thorough knowledge of the details of the agreement. In addition, he must also be well versed with real estate jargon.
It is necessary for the owner to get to know his tenants personally before renting out the property to them. Furthermore, the owner should have made a Request For Proposal before leasing out the property.
What the Tenant Should Know Before Signing the Leasing Agreement
It is absolutely essential that the commercial property suits the requirements of the potential tenants. They should discuss the payment of rent and other important factors related to the property with the owner, before signing the agreement.
Reading the terms and conditions carefully beforehand, can help eliminate any confusion later on. Needless to say, the tenants need to make sure that they don’t violate any terms of the agreement. Trouble of any kind caused from their end can lead to the termination of the agreement.
For How Long the Commercial Leasing Agreement Stays Valid
The commercial leasing agreement doesn’t have any fixed time period. It can go on for any length of time and can even last beyond three years. It is up to the owner to decide the tenure of the agreement’s validity, before leasing out their commercial property.
