California Commercial Lease Agreement

The California Commercial Lease Agreement is a document for tenants looking to rent out an office, building, or other property from a commercial landlord for a business purpose. California law is very relaxed to commercial renters (in comparison to how they treat residential tenants), meaning commercial tenants are entrusted with being responsible and standing up for themselves. Although this gives landlords more of an ability to take advantage of their tenant, it also gives tenants an opportunity to negotiate the terms of the lease, which could result in lower monthly rent or the ability to make physical changes to the rental, to name a couple. Tenants should negotiate before signing the contract, as after signatures have been recorded the landlord can refuse any requested changes.
