Landlords and Tenants of retail shops and commercial premises need relevant & specific advice when negotiating the terms of their lease.
As the owner of a commercial or retail property, the starting point is to have a high quality lease agreement in place. As the lease of your commercial or retail premises may operate for many years, it is essential that the Lease document contains all the terms and conditions that you need.
Landlords need to comply with disclosure obligations when leasing retail premises. Before sending any lease documents to the Tenant, contact us to review the documents. Do not give possession of the property to the Tenant until all documents are signed and exchanged and the initial rent, bond and costs are paid.
Even before you start negotiations, our “20 Tenant Tips” contain suggestions to assist you to make the right decisions – it may save you money and angst!
Before signing any lease document, contact us to review your lease so that we can minimise the risks and maximise your opportunities.
Ensure that the lease agreement contains all of the terms and conditions you need for the use of the property; before any document is signed. Whether a retail shop lease or a commercial lease, the lease document should be reviewed before you commit yourself to the obligations and responsibilities.
Where you are an existing tenant and your lease is coming to an end, whether or not you have an option to extend or renew the lease.
