We put our client’s commercial needs at the forefront to negotiate, draft, transact and settle all commercial leasing matters or issues.

What is a commercial lease lawyer?

A commercial lease lawyer is a property lawyer who is qualified and can provide advice on leases for commercial properties including the terms of the lease, the conditions included in the lease, and they can also negotiate the lease on your behalf if necessary.

As a landlord, it is essential that you have a structurally sound lease agreement that clearly defines the rights and obligations of each party and have appropriate security in place for times where a tenant defaults.

As a tenant, it is equally important that you understand your rights and obligations from a contract perspective but also in circumstances where the Retail Leases Act applies.

Do I need a lawyer for a commercial lease?

A commercial lease is a legal document and whilst you can sign without the assistance of a lawyer it is not advisable. Due to the complex nature of some commercial leases we would recommend the assistance of a property lawyer to avoid unforeseen expense and issues in future years.

How does a lawyer negotiate a commercial lease?

By understanding the applicable property regulations and legislation our property lawyers, can confidently advise and negotiate on your behalf, to ensure the most appropriate terms for the commercial lease to meet your business needs.

How can I terminate my commercial or retail lease?

The first step in determining whether you can terminate your commercial or retail lease is reading the conditions of the lease to confirm what you have agreed to as far as your rights and obligations are concerned. As every commercial or retail lease is different the best way to confirm if you can terminate the lease is to seek the advice of a property lawyer.

Our property lawyers deal in a broad range of leasing related matters and help our clients understand their legal responsibilities and the commercial implications of the deal. We help negotiate deals at the outset, draft and provide advice on lease agreements, transact on any associated settlement and, in cases of lease disputes, we help you to enforce your rights in a proper legal manner and assist you by negotiating the best commercial outcome.
