A lease agreement for business premises is a contract entered into by the owner of a business premises (commercial space) and a person intending to conduct their registered business activity in the leased premises.

If the tenant intends to modify the business premises to suit their needs or business activity, it is of great importance to include provisions in the agreement that outline the mutual rights and obligations of the contracting parties. If the tenant intends to make certain investments in the office space that can be considered as an investment that increases the value of the pledged real estate, the contracting parties can provide that the estimated value of the investment investments is deducted as a percentage from the monthly rents that the tenant is obliged to pay.

Also, it is important to settle the issue of bearing the costs of communal services. It is a well-known fact that certain activities (e.g. bakeries) generate a large consumption of electricity. In order for the owner of the business premises not to put himself in a situation where he has to bear costs in the name of the previously realized consumption of electricity, it is desirable that he, upon concluding the lease agreement, report the change of right of use to the electricity supplier in accordance with Article 62 of the Regulation on the conditions of delivery and supply of electricity

Contracts for the lease of business premises are often concluded for a period of several years.
