A commercial property lease is a legal contract that provides tenants with the rights over a property for a set period of time,  liable to the terms and conditions within the legally binding document. The question of ‘who pays for repairs in commercial property?’ often rises as terms can differ from those of a residential property as there is no one rule fits all. Commonly, tenants will be responsible for the rented property, therefore any damages to areas such as the walls, fixtures, and fittings leave the tenants liable. The landlord, meanwhile, is responsible for structural problems that may arise such as leaks in the roof, cracks in walls, and other major defects.
