A Kansas commercial lease agreement is a binding contract for a tenant to lease retail, office, or industrial space. The agreement sets the responsibilities and rights for both landlords and tenants, as well as details about rent, deadlines, penalties, and other items.

The Kansas law that governs commercial leases is Kansas Code Chapter 84, Article 2a. These types of leases are typically more complicated than a residential lease, so consulting with a lawyer is advisable.
