Commercial Leasing Resources

Introduction

Practice in the area of Commercial Leasing relies heavily on the use of forms and sample agreements. Forms are documents that allow an attorney simply to fill in the blanks (e.g., parties' names, price, etc.) in order to draft a document. Sample agreements are either actual or hypothetical agreements that an attorney can look to in order to understand how an agreement should be structured. While many of the treatises and practice guides discussed above provide sample forms and/or agreements, there are additional resources that consist solely or mainly of these types of documents.
