An Indiana commercial lease agreement is a document that facilitates non-residential property leasing transactions within the state. It is designed for various business leasing needs, ensuring adaptability for retail spaces, offices, or industrial facilities, and once signed by both parties, it becomes legally binding.
From maintenance and repair obligations to utility and property tax considerations, the document minimizes the potential for disputes by defining each party’s role in the leasing relationship.
