Leasing Law - Residential, Commercial & Retail
Our Business law team has a vast range of experience in leasing law. We regularly act for property owners, developers, landlords and tenants.
Leases that are not drafted and reviewed by experienced professionals can cause serious issues for you and your business. Our team is across the laws for residential, retail and commercial leases. You can have confidence that we will ensure protection of your rights and obligations to the best of our ability.
Potential complications can arise in relation to:
- Which party is to undertake and/or pay for repairs
- Which outgoings are payable by which party, and reasonable estimates of outgoings
- Whether the provisions of a retail lease are consistent with the obligations in the Retail Leases Act 2003 (Vic)
- Adequate retail lease disclosure statements
- Assigning a lease
- Renewing a lease
- Rent reviews, including market rent reviews
We can help you avoid common pitfalls of leasing law from the outset. We strongly recommend obtaining advice before you enter into or renew a lease so talk to us before you sign.
We can assist in:
- Drafting, reviewing, advising and negotiating on behalf of landlords and tenants of retail, commercial and residential property
- Reviewing, advising and negotiating on interstate leases
- Drafting the required disclosure documents on behalf of landlords of retail leases
- Drafting and advising on any notices required to be given under the lease
