Many companies today operate from leased commercial premises, which is why it is imperative for them to have a good, balanced commercial lease agreement.
As a rule, the parties in a commercial tenancy have contractual freedom, meaning that they have the opportunity to extensively negotiate. In the absence of an agreement, the rights and obligations under commercial lease law apply. Thus, it is very important what is agreed in a commercial lease agreement and which mandatory legislative rules apply.
