Law/Patents - Law: Contract(s) / Lease agreement
French term or phrase: Activité civile
"CONVENTION DE LOCATION D'UNE ACTIVITÉ CIVILE"

This is a lease agreement for a nursing home which is being leased to a company. Is this a Commercial Lease or am I on the wrong track, also though it could be 'Residential Lease"

Any help greatly appreciated!

many thanks.
