A Missouri commercial lease agreement is a document between a landlord and a business tenant describing the terms of renting an office, retail, or industrial building. It provides a framework for the transaction, allowing the landlord to collect rent payments and the tenant to conduct business within the defined permissions.
This agreement includes multiple provisions, including both parties identifying details, the premises’s address, property use guidelines, the lease’s length, and maintenance/repair responsibilities.

Jurisdiction: According to MO Rev. Stat. § 400.2A-106, a lease’s jurisdiction must be very specific. It can only be one in which the lessee lives when the agreement becomes enforceable or one in which the goods are to be used. A lease won’t recognize any other jurisdiction even if the parties mutually decide on one.
