Tenants & Leasing A Retail Or Commercial Property

Securing a lease for your business is a significant long-term commitment so having a legal professional review the terms before you sign is essential. 

Our team has reviewed countless lease agreements for business owners. The review process we offer provides clarity about what the terms of the agreement will mean for you and your business in the short and longer-term. 

In that process we flag any terms that may pose a problem now or later on so you can make an educated decision about whether you should agree to those terms, negotiate a variation to some of the terms, or walk away.

The SCB Legal team assists with:

  • Reviewing and advising on lease agreement terms to ensure the lease covers your needs
  • Identification of specific obligations of the agreement
  • Negotiation of variations to lease terms including rent free periods
  • Finalisation of the lease agreement
  • Dispute management and resolution (inclusive of NCAT)

How comprehensive a lease agreement review process is, or isn’t, can greatly impact your business. Our lawyers are mindful of the commonly overlooked elements that create unforeseen consequences and challenges for tenants.

These can include:

  • Additional expenses – air conditioning maintenance, common area cleaning fees, servicing of lifts etc.
  • Capacity (or lack of) for you to assign or transfer the lease if you outgrow the premises
  • Exit expenses e.g. repainting or refurbishment requirements upon end of lease

Our commercial lease lawyers look for elements like these in lease agreements and bring them to your attention so you can confirm if you wish to agree to those terms. Or, whether you would like us to negotiate a variation to the specific terms of the agreement. Importantly, we take the time to learn what your business goals are and what you will need from a premises as your business grows and evolves. Past clients tell us this depth of advice helped them avoid significant expenses and risks.

Choose Your Commercial Lease Lawyer Carefully

Ensure you engage a solicitor who has the attention to detail required.
