New Lease – Tenant

As a tenant, you need to be sure that the lease agreement you are entering into adequately protects your commercial interests. The reality is that landlord leases are typically not drafted in the tenant’s favour.

Some things a tenant should consider include:

  • Rent
  • Rent Review
  • Further Terms
  • Permitted Use of the Premises
  • Commencement/termination date
  • Security Deposit (Bond)
  • Trading Hours
  • Insurance Obligations
  • Rent Review
  • Repairs and Maintenance
  • Make Good
  • Special Conditions advantageous to you

We regularly provide advice on the above – and many more – to tenants considering entering into a commercial lease arrangement. The benefit of this advice is experienced not only at the commencement of the lease but during the term, any further terms and upon exit of the premises.

Our commercial lease lawyers will:

  • discuss your individual requirements;
  • assist you in negotiating a lease suitable to your commercial interests – getting this right at the start saves a lot of headaches later; and
  • ensure that you have clauses included that are individually tailored to your circumstances. This could include rent-free periods, fit-out and many other industry specific and business specific issues.

Our lawyers have considerable experience in retail leases and non-retail leases across a wide variety of industries. With our history of experience in Victoria and all other Australian states, you know you are in safe hands.
