Updated January 04, 2023

A massage therapist booth agreement is between a lessor, typically the owner of a massage parlor, and a therapist, the “lessee”, that agrees to lease a booth. The agreement is straightforward and allows the lessee to rent the booth in exchange for rent to practice their therapy services. Other conditions, such as how rent is paid, hours of operation, use of the premises, and any other terms may be included.

1 – The Rental Booth Template On This Page Should Be Saved To Your Computer

The template on this page can be used to solidify a rental agreement for a massage booth. It can be saved to your computer using the buttons under the image or the links above this section. If you have compatible software, then you may open it and work on it onscreen immediately. It is strongly advised that you save this file to an accessible folder on your machine.

2 – This Lease And Both Parties Should Be Documented

The first statement under the title will present three blank two blank spaces that require the calendar month, day, and year attached to the agreement being generated. 

Next, we will need to present the Lessor and the Lessee. First, locate the bold label “Lessor.” Input his or her full name on the blank line that follows this bold label.  Then on the second blank line (following the term “…A Mailing Address Of”) produce the building number, street, and suite number where the Lessor receives his or her mail.  The Lessee is the individual who will pay the Lessor to rent the massage booth being discussed. Furnish this entity’s full name on the blank space after the bold label “Lessee.” Once you have done this, supply the Lessee’s mailing address on the next empty line in this statement.

3 – Discuss The Premises And The Rental Terms

It is time to address the rental property and the terms that will enable the Lessee to rent it from the Lessor. We must begin this process by defining the rental property. To accomplish this, record the street address of the property’s physical location on the first blank line in “I. Lease Premises.” You must continue defining the rental property by documenting its physical size. You will need the exact measurements of the space you are renting. Record the how long and how wide it is using the last two blank lines of the statement we are tending to. Make sure to report these measurements in feet. The next article, “II. Term Of Agreement,” will present three checkbox statements. You must mark or fill in the checkbox that corresponds to the best description of when the Tenant will be allowed to rent the space from the Lessor. Keep in mind that each of these will require some additional information to complete this definition. Mark the “Fixed Lease” checkbox if the Lessor will agree to rent the space to the Lessee for a predetermined amount of time that must be honored to satisfy this agreement. If this is the case, then report the first calendar date (month, day, and year) when the Lessee must begin renting and occupying the space then, on the last two blank spaces, document the final calendar date of the Lessee’s rental period on the last two blank space. If the Lessor will be renting the booth on a month-to-month basis, then fill in the second checkbox (“Month-To-Month Lease”). Three blank spaces in this statement will require some attention. Use the first two spaces to enter the first calendar date of the Lessee’s rental period and the last blank space to document how many days’ notice either party must give the other that this rental agreement will be terminated. The last option will enable you to document the term of a “Week-To-Week Lease,” if this is a more accurate description. In this case, mark the corresponding checkbox, fill in the first calendar date when the Lessee must begin renting the booth across the first two blank spaces and the number of days’ notice that each party is obligated to deliver to the other when intending to terminate this rental agreement. Article “III. Fixed Rent” serves this paperwork by documenting how much money the Lessee must pay the Lessor to occupy the booth space. This fact must be solidified by the time both parties have finished negotiations. Produce the rent amount the Lessee must pay the Lessor on the first blank line then, enter it numerically on the second blank space.   In addition, you will need to indicate if this amount must be paid on a weekly basis or monthly basis. To accomplish this, choose one of the first two checkboxes and supply it with some information. Thus, if the rent you defined above is due every week, then select the first checkbox and report the day of the week when the Lessor is to receive the rent money for the booth space.  If the rent above will be due on a monthly basis, then select the second choice and supply the two-digit calendar day of the month when the Lessor expects the rent to be submitted each month. In some cases, a massage booth will require a percentage of the business’ income (except tips) submitted in addition to the rent required above. If so, then mark the first checkbox in “A.) Percentage Rent.” You must also report the exact percentage of the massage booth’s profits using the two blank lines in this statement. If the Lessor and Lessee have agreed that only the standard rent is required, and no additional percentage rent will be due, then mark the second statement.

We will also need to define the way the Lessor expects payment. You can accomplish this by marking one of the checkboxes in “IV. Payment Of Rent.” Thus, if the Lessor expects payment by check, then mark the checkbox labeled “Check” (see example below). Otherwise, you may check either the “Cash” or “Other” box. Bear in mind that if you mark the “Other” box, you must use the blank line to provide how the Lessee must submit the rent payment (See Example).

4 – Disclosures Regarding The Leased Premises Required Information

The next two articles “V. Condition Of The Premises” and “VI. Use Of The Premises” are both required disclosures for this paperwork and should be reviewed by the Lessor and Lessee. The subject of equipment must also be discussed in a massage booth agreement. If the Lessor will be obligated to supply a Table for the Lessee’s business use, then mark the first checkbox (“Table”) in article “VI. Equipment And Personal Property.” If the Lessor will supply a table as well as other equipment, then select the “Other” checkbox and used the blank line to provide a manifest of all the equipment (including tables). See the example below. Additional specifics regarding the booth leasing will be covered in “VIII. Lessee To Maintain Premises” and “IX. Janitorial Service.” Both parties should read these sections to their satisfaction. The article, “X. Utilities,” will have several checkboxes that enable you to quickly solidify the booth utilities the Lessor will be obligated to pay for the duration of this lease. You may select “Water,” “Electricity,” “Telephone,” “Heat,” and “Other.” Each checkbox corresponding to a utility should be marked. If there is a utility that is not listed but the Lessor will pay for then select “Other” and report this. For instance, if the Lessor will pay for the electricity, water, and internet service then mark the checkboxes labeled “Water,” “Electricity,” and “Other” making sure to write in the word “Internet Service.” See the example below. The next article requiring our attention is “XI. Taxes.” Use this section to report who shall pay the taxes associated with this premises. If it will be the Lessee, then mark the first box. Note: The Lessor must own this property to apply this condition. If the Lessor will be responsible to make sure all the taxes resulting from this property are paid then, mark the second checkbox.

5 – The Rights And Limitations Of The Lessee Must be Defined

“XII. Indemnity By Lessee” has been included as a protection to the Lessor and should be read by both parties. The next section that requires information is “XIII. Default By Lessee.” Here the result of noncompliance to this paperwork. The language here is a required standard for this purpose however you will need to provide some basic information. Begin entering how many days must pass after the Tenant receipt of a violation notice(i.e. nonpayment, severe damage) that he or she did not comply with when the Lessor will consider this agreement in default.Next, use the second blank space to report the number of days after a judgment (i.e. bankruptcy) when the Lessee must vacate the premises. Some important information regarding the rights and limitations of both these parties will be delivered in “Assignment And Subletting,” “XV. Damages To Or Destruction Of Premises,” “XVI. Severability,” and “XVII. No Waiver.” It is strongly recommended that the Lessor and Lessee both familiarize themselves with this information before signing this document.

6 – Additional Information Must Be Included In This Paperwork

Use the blank space in “XVIII. Governing Law” to record the state that is responsible for upholding this agreement. This will be the state where this agreement will be in effect. The next several articles (“XIX. Notices,” “XX. Attorney’s Fees,” “XXI. Mandatory Arbitration,” and “XXII. Assignment Of Rights” will supply some valuable information to both parties. Any “Additional Terms & Conditions” should be clearly documented on the blank lines in the twenty-third article. You may attach additional paperwork and cite it by title in this section if more room is required. For instance, if you are required by the local government to supply disclosure of the health codes that apply to this business, you should refer to it by title and attach it to this document. An example below has been provided. Otherwise, if no other conditions apply, you may enter the word “None.”Some additional information regarding this paperwork will make up the remaining two articles and will apply as soon as this document is signed.

7 – A Dated Signature Must Be Provided By Both Parties

This agreement will not be considered binding unless it is dated and signed by both parties. First, locate the statement “Witness Our Signatures As Of This” then fill in the first, second, and third blank spaces with the calendar day, month, and year of this document’s signing. The Lessor must sign and print his or her name on the “Lessor’s Signature” and “Print Name” respectively. Then, he or she must enter the exact date of his or her signature date. The Lessee must also sign his or her name. This signature must be provided on the “Lessee’s Signature” line. Once this task is completed, the Lessee must print his or her name below the signature he or she has supplied then supply the calendar date when he or she signed this document on the blank line adjacent to his or her signature.
