What is a Bail Commercial?

The Bail Commercial (also known as a commercial lease) is the lease of a building to a tenant who intends to use the space for commercial reasons, including retail, industrial, or artisanal purposes. This special commercial status gives access to certain rights, such as the right to renew the lease or the eviction indemnity.


Investing in a real estate asset with “Bail Commercial” has some key crucial details. Below are some of the listed aspects that need to be considered.


  • The tenant’s reliability with rent or not

  • The tenant’s right to stay as determined at the end of the lease agreement

  • The rent has to be at market value


It must also be understood that a landlord does not have the right to evict a tenant.
