A commercial lease is a type of legal agreement between a landlord and a business, where the business uses the property for the purpose of conducting commercial activity from that property.

While residential leases are drafted for the enjoyment of a tenant’s space, commercial leases are created with the goal of running and maintaining a business. These two types of leases do share features in common, for example rent and security deposits, commercial leases are quite different from residential leases.
