A commercial lease or retail lease is a document that sets out the rights and obligations of a lessor (the owner of the property) and the lessee (the person/company who wishes to lease the property).

We can help you:

  • Prepare a Lease for your commercial property
  • Provide advice on a Lease if your thinking of leasing a commercial property.

The typical terms and conditions of a lease will include the following:

  • the period of the lease
  • any options for renewal;
  • rent, outgoings and the rent review mechanisms;
  • responsibility for maintenance, repairs and structural works;
  • the tenant’s scope to carry out works on the premises to suit its requirements;
  • circumstances in which the landlord may access the premises;
  • the process for dealing with tenant breaches as well as grounds for termination;
  • restrictions on subleasing;
  • the scope of the tenant’s obligation to “make good” the premises at the end of the lease term;
  • insurance, indemnity and liability for damage to the premises;
  • the rights of both parties if the landlord wants to renovate or redevelop the premises;
  • bank guarantees and security deposits; and
  • a dispute resolution plan.
