Commercial Leasing

The law governing commercial leasing is contained in the Retail Shop Leasing Act. You need to know what you are getting into when you sign a lease, and have considered what might happen if your business doesn’t perform consistently.

Thurlow Fisher Lawyers can advise in relation to commercial and retail leases, and conduct matters for both landlords and tenants. It is important to make sure the lease is carefully drawn up, and that the terms are fair. We can negotiate on your behalf to ensure that the terms comply with the law, are reasonable, and meet your unique business’ needs.

We will help you to understand your obligations, such as the need for insurance, any Body Corporate responsibilities, the process involved to sublet the property, or extend, transfer or terminate the lease, disclosure statement requirements, and your rights in relation to a forced relocation. We can also assist you to resolve disputes that may arise.
