Texas Commercial Lease Agreement
The Texas commercial lease agreement may be used for all properties consisting of retail, office, or industrial space that is limited to only business tenants. The tenant, either signing in their personal name or under an entity, is typically seeking space that has been “fit-up” by the landlord, in other words, the property owner will provide the space as a “vanilla box” ready for the tenant to move in with their fixtures upon the first (1st) day of occupancy. It is not uncommon for the landlord to allow the tenant to work and prepare the space in order to be open and practicing their business on the first (1st) day of the lease.
- Rental Application – If the owner would like to check the financial background of the principal(s) or individual(s) of the business this document will give an idea of their credit, financial situation, and their history of paying rent (if applicable).
- Secretary of State Business Search – Only if the applying tenant is an entity, this will give a brief description of the company’s history at the Secretary of State level.
