This is our commercial lease template for leasing business property.
It is designed to be used when you want to put in place a lease for commercial property. It can be easily customised to suit your individual requirements and is suitable for the letting of all types of commercial or business property.
This type of lease agreement puts in place a robust and reliable agreement that is suitable for both short term and long term letting of commercial property where no break clause is required. If you do need a break clause, you can find it here, as a supplement to this commercial lease template.
David, our co-founder and solicitor of over twenty years, drafted the template. This ensures that you can rely on the document being up-to-date and legally comprehensive. Our detailed guidance notes (free with the template) make completing the final lease simple and fast. A copy of the guidance notes are available here: guide to this commercial lease template.
If you wish to contract out of the provisions of the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 that permit the tenant to ask for an extension of the lease when it expires, our guide and free declarations and notices assist you in this regard.

Don’t use it for letting property located in Scotland. This is because Scottish property law is very different to that of England and Wales.
What is a Commercial Lease Agreement?
If you have a building you own for business purposes, you will want to let it to a tenant. To do this, you will have to put in place a lease. You have a number of options. The licence to occupy business premises, for example, puts in place a very flexible agreement. However, it does not offer much protection for the landlord, as it is brief.
The tenancy at will is also a brief simple agreement, but neither party to the agreement can tie the other to a long notice period. This may not be ideal in many business letting arrangements.
This commercial lease agreement creates the most robust and formal of the commercial tenancies available.
The cost of our agreement is inexpensive compared to visiting a high street solicitor for the same document. With our free guidance notes, completing the final agreement yourself is easy.
As a standard lease template, the agreement is flexible. You can use it for a wide range of commercial property types. You can use this template agreement for letting office spaces, retail shops, warehouses or other commercial property.
We also have residential property agreements that would be suitable for use by a landlord of residential properties.
You can read our guide to this commercial lease template to get a better feel for the document. It details what you need to do to complete our lease template.
There is an optional clause that you can use to add a Guarantor. This means that, if the tenant is not meeting the rental obligations, the Guarantor can be required to step in and meet them.
