ROCKHAMPTON LEASING LAWYERS
Whether you’re interested in leasing commercial or rural property, a small shed or a large warehouse, we’re here to help.
We represent landlords and tenants in disputes over rent and other covenants in leases. We can advise on make good obligations or what’s involved with transferring or assigning a lease.
For clients interested in leasing rural property, we provide assistance with formalising the lease agreement, understanding different types of leases, the tax implications associated with leasing and conducting due diligence prior to signing the lease agreement.
If you’re considering a commercial lease, at the outset you need to understand that there are various types of commercial leases, depending on the type of business that will be run from the premises.
In this context, there is no such thing as a lease agreement that fits all businesses, despite what may be told to you.
For example, if you’re opening a cafe or a retail outlet, your lease will generally be governed by relevant legislation. In Queensland, this is the Retail Shop Leases Act 1994 and it imposes numerous conditions on both the Landlord and Tenant that you need to be aware of before considering the lease agreement.
We frequently draft and negotiate all types of leases for both landlords and tenants. We have extensive experience in the acquisition and disposal of commercial, retail, industrial and residential properties.
