The Texas commercial lease agreement is a contract whereby a landlord rents out commercial property to an individual or business entity. Generally speaking, commercial rental agreements are for a term of more than a year with an option for the tenant to renew the contract before it terminates. The responsibilities of both parties must be clearly stated in the document for them to be legally binding. Failure of either party to fulfill the terms of their agreement can result in legal action and lease termination.
