A Texas commercial lease agreement is a legal document between a landlord and a business entity where commercial space is rented out for business operations. Key elements include renewal options, sublease clauses, and repercussions for late payments.
Signing this agreement, preferably in front of a notary public, ensures its enforceability, particularly crucial for new businesses that might need to provide a personal guarantee. Non-compliance with the agreement’s terms can lead to legal disputes and potential termination of the lease.
