What is a Commercial Agreement?
Commercial agreements are legally binding agreements between two parties (in most cases business entities) where they are bound or required to do or refrain from doing a set of particular things. In simple terms, it is basically a contract or business agreement between two parties which may be done verbally, in written form, or implied in a formal or informal way.
The property agreement examples shown on the page show agreements that are either for the lease of a property, management of a property, or development of a property. Such agreements are made between the property owner and another entity who wants to either rent, develop, or has a contract with the owner to manage the property.
Terminating a Commercial Lease Agreement
In most cases, there are four general ways to end a commercial lease or rental agreement:
- Break clause – tenants give 2 months notice to landlord to use the break clause; can only be used by landlord if tenant consents
- Tenants ending a lease – with consent from the landlord, the tenant either passes the lease to someone else or subletting another party but remaining responsible for the lease or rent
- Landlords ending a lease – used by landlord when tenants fail to pay the rent or obligations
- Fixed-term tenancy – lease of the property automatically ends after an agreed fixed term but can extend if landlord agrees

Contents of a Commercial Agreement
- Agreement offer and acceptance – The terms of the agreement must be accepted by both parties – which includes what is being paid for, bought, sold, or delivered. Management agreements, partnership agreements, and business agreements usually describe this element in detail in their contracts.
- Consideration – Each party involved has to have a certain value exchange which otherwise differentiates the contract or agreement to a present or gift.
- Intent of legal relations – Both parties involved must have the capability of entering into a legal contract. This means both understand exactly what they are entering to and understand the obligations involved.
- Willingness to enter – Each party must not be forced or misled into entering the agreement or contract otherwise the contract can be considered null and void.

Negotiating your Commercial Agreement
- Keep it simple – Always keep to the basics in negotiating any agreement. Do not put in too much complicated deal structures or stipulations that may otherwise confuse and dissuade the potential deal from coming to fruition.
- Mutual agreement – Make sure to have both parties agree with the main elements of the agreement before deciding to draft a written contract. It is easier to go straight to the point of what is deliverable and the exclusions rather than doing lengthy propositions and terms. This would typically be quite useful in a loan agreement to properly identify the terms of the agreement.
- Involving lawyers – It is but logical to consult and have your lawyers assist you in drafting and negotiating any business contract. They have the skills and you have the means.
- Management – Be sure to manage both your lawyers and your colleagues or any parties involved in the agreement. Setting up the right expectations make up for vague clauses or counter productive stipulations in the contract.
- Time – The correct allocation of time in making the contract and holding separate meetings before any drafting of an agreement helps in cementing a clear understanding of what both parties are going into and leaves all questions of other stipulations on specific meetings which can then be incorporated to the final draft of an agreement.
