Commercial and Retail Leases in Victoria

Commercial and Retail leases are important documents.  A lease once signed sets out the terms of the landlord and tenant relationship for many years.  So, it is important to get it right.

Landlords and tenants have different priorities.  


From a landlord’s perspective a good lease is one that imposes maximum obligations on the tenant for maintenance, repairs, make good and outgoings. 


Whereas a tenant will always want to minimise these obligations.  It is important that a commercial or retail lease strikes a fair balance between these two opposing positions.
