A Mississippi 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 Mississippi law overseeing commercial leases is Mississippi Code Title 89, Chapter 7. These types of leases are typically more complex than other types of leases, so consulting with a lawyer is recommended.
