Florida Commercial Lease Agreement

The Florida Commercial Lease Agreement is an official document used to establish the terms and conditions regarding the renting of a property which will be used solely for business purposes. Commercial properties in Florida typically consist of offices, retail centers, restaurants, hotels, resorts, or warehouses. A commercial lease will typically differ from a lease used for residential purposes in that the commercial lease will contain sections regarding what the property can be used for, customer parking, and what improvements can be made to the property, to name a few.

Florida Commercial Lease Law: §§ 83.001 to 83.251
