What is a Lease Agreement for Commercial Premises?

Under this lease agreement, the owner (landlord) provides commercial space to an organization or person (tenant) in which the latter will operate a business. The tenant pays rent to the landlord for the use of the commercial premises. The rent may be a fixed amount, a percentage of the tenant’s turnover, or a combination of both (turnover-based rent with a guaranteed minimum amount). Depending on the duration of the lease, the landlord may provide that the rent follows the development of the Swiss consumer price index (indexed rent) or that it increases each year by an amount specified in the agreement (graduated rent). In addition to the rent, the tenant must pay ancillary costs (often referred to as “accessory charges” in Switzerland), which essentially include all costs related to the individual use of the leased property (heating, water, management costs, etc.) and to the common areas (entrances, elevators, access ramps, etc.).

It is in the interest of the landlord and the tenant that the frequency of visitors is as high as possible. For this reason, the lease agreement very often stipulates that the tenant has not only the right but also the obligation to operate its store during the agreed opening hours.
