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

The South Dakota law that oversees commercial leases is South Dakota Codified Law Chapter 43-32. These types of leases are typically longer and more complex than a residential lease, so consulting with a lawyer is advisable.
