A North Carolina commercial lease agreement is a legal document outlining the terms and conditions of renting commercial property. It establishes a binding relationship between the tenant and landlord, defining the lease’s duration, the payment structure for the tenant to follow, and each party’s obligations.
Both parties can negotiate the document’s terms to ensure they enter a mutually beneficial relationship. For example, a tenant may agree to accept most of the maintenance responsibilities in exchange for exclusivity rights to the property.
