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

The New Mexico law that governs commercial leases is New Mexico Statutes Chapter 55, Article 2A. These types of leases are longer and more complicated than residential leases, so consulting with a lawyer is advisable.
