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

The Nebraska law that governs commercial leases is the Nebraska Uniform Commercial Code. These types of leases are typically more complex than a residential lease, so consulting with a lawyer is advisable.
