It is a major investment decision to lease commercial or industrial property, therefore having legal support is advised. A commercial lease can often be fraught with potential problems. These problems differ in other types of leasing agreements, such as residential and retail. For business owners entering into a commercial or industrial lease, there is risk involved. If something were to go wrong during the leasing process and the tenant were to lose the property, they could also potentially lose their business.

A Commercial lease is differentiated from other types of leases by a number of things. A commercial or industrial premise differs depending on the business’ activity on the property. If any form of buying and selling to the public were to take place on the premises that would be considered retail. Retail leases are protected by different legislation.
