Many state Realtor associations, such as Arizona Association of Realtors, have such a form. Some will sell a hard copy to a member of the public. Others, not. In any event, there is no one-size-fits all commercial real estate form but a pre-printed form will give you an idea of the issues to be considered. However, it would be better if your clients paid their own attorney to review a form or, initially, to review the proposed Letter of Intent and then to draft the actual contract if the offer is accepted or negotiated and accepted.
No agent or broker should draft a commercial real estate contract on his/her own, even using a form. Always require the client to use an attorney or, if they balk, to sign a hold-harmless agreement stating that you advised them to use an attorney and they are knowingly choosing not to do it and, whatever happens, they won't sue you or your broker.
You sound like a newbie in commercial real estate brokerage. Be sure to check with your broker to make sure your company will allow you to broker a commercial real estate transaction. Some brokerages are residential only; others only allow designated commercial brokers to handle commercial deals so you must refer the opportunity to them. It is a risk management issue. Residential agents who do commercial deals without supervision are errors and omissions lawsuits waiting to happen because they don't know what they don't know.
