A New York commercial lease agreement is a legal contract a landlord uses to rent a commercial space to a business entity. It defines the landlord-tenant relationship, including the rights and responsibilities of each party.
A landlord will often request various information from the tenant to ensure they’ll fulfill their end of the agreement. For example, they may ask the tenant for a history of their past income, project income, and references. A tenant can also confirm they’re entering a beneficial arrangement by inspecting the property to ensure it meets their needs for operating in a commercial capacity.
