Connecticut Commercial Lease Agreement
A Connecticut Commercial Lease Agreement is a formal and legally binding contract by commercial property owners and commercial tenants. A commercial rental agreement is used to lease an office, retail or industrial space to an entity for the use of everyday business.
How to Write a Connecticut Commercial Lease Agreement
Our commercial lease agreement fillable form caters for commercial spaces such as office, retail store, industrial property, building, warehouses and other commercial spaces.
It is crucial both parties review the commercial lease agreement and be in full agreement over the terms and conditions of the contract. This is because in the event of a dispute, the Connecticut courts will rely on the documentation of the agreement and the wording of the document will represent each party involved.
As such, important terms such as subleasing, security deposits, and rent should be covered. Once the appropriate parties sign the lease, they will be obligated to the agreement terms and conditions for the duration of the contract.
The first section of the CT lease agreement form will require information regarding the landlord and the tenant. Both parties should enter their full name, legal street address, city, state and zip code.
Then you’ll be required to enter a description of the premises leased in “premises information” section. You’ll be required to report the property address, city, state, zip, premises type and square footage. You’ll also be able to give a concise description of the business operations expected on the property.
“Premises Guidelines” is a series of simple questions requiring “yes” or “no” answers. For example, it’ll ask “Is smoking allowed?” if it’s allowed simply to tick “yes.”
Connecticut General Statutes 47a-16 states that the landlord may enter the rented/leased premises for emergency reasons but at reasonable times. However a reasonable oral or written notice should be given for non-emergency. You will be able to indicate the number of days’ notice that will be given should the landlord need to enter the leased/rented property for non-emergency in “premises guidelines” section.
The “Terms of Agreement” will need the duration in months and years for the lease. If it’s a commercial rental agreement, it’ll need to indicate when the agreement will start and how it shall be renewed.
In the “payment information” part indicate how rent will be paid, the amount and the payment method. You’ll also be able to state whether a penalty for late payment and a returned check is allowed and the amount of security deposit the tenant is supposed to pay.
In “tenant responsibilities” you should indicate whether the tenant will be expected to perform any duties or maintenance. If you click “yes” it’ll expand allowing you to add these duties and responsibilities.
The “Additions/Appendixes” sections will allow you to indicate whether an inspection report and blueprints/diagrams are included in the agreement. The last section of our Connecticut commercial lease agreement form allows you to capture “other details” like when the document will be signed, the number of witnesses and any extra details not captured in the lease agreement form.
Once the form it’s fully completed, you can preview it and download on your computer in different file formats for printing.
