Looking to rent out or lease in some land? Perhaps you want to start a farm in it or you want to live in it. The process of leasing out a plot of land (sometimes with a house included) is as straightforward as leasing a whole residential unit or a vehicle, for example. In other words, it’s not that straightforward at all. With all the legal details and fine print involved in the land lease contract, you might be intimidated into putting off the leasing process altogether.
We can help you figure it out. This collection of Lease Agreement Templates will cover samples for residential as well as commercial land leases. Download them now as free PDF or Word documents and learn what the process actually takes.
A land lease agreement is the document that allows you to legally rent the usage rights and privileges of real estate property for a stated period under certain terms and conditions and at a leasing price.
Whether the plot of land in your sights comes with a building or not, the contract you’ll have to sign for it will be similar to any Rental Lease Agreement you’ve signed before. This works more or less the same way with a Commercial Lease Agreement, with the addition of terms restricting your use of the property for commercial reasons.
Depending on your agreement with the landlord, you will be signing some form of the following (samples included for each):
You will be able to download any and all of these sample contracts as free PDF files, and where they are offered as Word documents, you will even be able to edit them in your word processor to create your own contracts. Otherwise, they are useful mainly as references.
They will help you plan for that leasing venture you have in mind by showing you the nitty-gritty details. Employ the help of a real-estate-savvy attorney if you must.
If you’re merely looking to lease a residential unit that happens to be on a plot of land, you might want a House Lease Agreement instead. Be sure to check the clauses to determine whether you are in charge of maintaining the land as a tenant.
