A Michigan commercial lease agreement is a legally binding contract between a business entity and a landlord of commercial property. It establishes a rental arrangement between the two parties so the landlord can receive rental revenue and the company can conduct its operations in the space.
These leases are usually more complex than residential leases, so a landlord and tenant can work together to define the transaction’s details, the parties’ information, base rent, security address, the property’s address, and the intended use.
