Georgia imposes specific and clear requirements on landlords and tenants when executing a lease or lease. For example, Georgian law (clarified in the Georgia Landlord Tenant Handbook) provides that the Georgia Commercial Lease Agreement is a document used by property owners who wish to rent their commercial premises (industry, retail, office) to commercial tenants. Due to the fact that commercial leases typically have longer terms than a residential lease agreement (three to five years instead of one), it is recommended that the lessor research their potential tenants by filing their information on the georgia State Business Search portal and having a rental application completed by landlords and all managers. Two copies of the agreement should be signed by both parties; one copy is for the landlord and the other for the tenant. .
