A transparent, clear and clear lease agreement is a guaranteed profit for both parties. Both for the shopping mall and for the tenant. The profit in the form of saved employee time can be spent on something much more constructive.

It is worth adding a few obvious things, such as the fact that both commercial premises lease agreement and commercial premises lease agreement, are concluded for a specified or indefinite period. It may be a period defined by a specific number (days, months or years) or the so-called indefinite period of time, there are also increasingly often lease agreements concluded for shorter periods in the Polish system, concluded for shorter periods with automatic renewal in the event of failure to submit a declaration of unwillingness to extend the lease, e.g. for another year (despite certain legal doubts, this solution has many practical advantages) . After the expiry of the deadline, the premises covered by the lease agreement should be handed over to the lessor. Lawyer specializing in real estate matters, preparing a template for the client premises lease agreements, should pay particular attention to the precise definition of the conditions of use of the premises, the method of determining the rent, as well as the precise conditions for terminating the contract or the legal consequences, e.g. temporary closing of the premises without the fault of either party. Only a well-prepared lease agreement will ensure the security of your business and avoid future misunderstandings and often even court disputes with the other party to the agreement.

Premises lease agreement it is always paid. The tenant is obliged to pay operating fees and rent, the amount and date of which are specified in the lease agreement. This rent depends primarily on the location, standard of the premises, necessary adaptations, contractual security and, finally, the planned rental period of the commercial premises. Although the most common form of rent for commercial premises is money, it is worth knowing that, according to the law, it may also take the form of other goods and even services provided to the lessor. However, rent does not always end the issue of fees for the rented premises, more on that real estate lawyer should inform you at the beginning of the development of the terms rental agreements.

The security provided for in the contracts can often also be used to cover other potential claims of the Landlords arising from the lease agreement - e.g. in the case of damage to the premises or unagreed adaptation works in the rented premises. 

More and more often, we also talk about rental costs in the context of the costs of terminating the lease agreement. In this context, we are talking about the costs of restoring the premises to its previous or developer condition (if such provisions are included in the contract), as well as possible clauses enabling early termination of the fixed-term lease agreement.
