A Louisiana 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.

Commercial leases are longer and more complicated than a residential lease, so consulting with a lawyer is advisable.
