Commercial and Retail Leasing

Whether you are a landlord or a tenant, the process of leasing commercial or retail premises is a significant business decision.  

Unfortunately, many business owners are unaware of the complexities involved in a commercial lease and may find themselves entering into a lease agreement that can have serious implications for their business. Having an experienced commercial property lawyer on hand to provide advice before you sign can save your business considerable time and money that would otherwise have to be spent resolving costly lease disputes and re-negotiations.
At CDQ, our experienced property team can provide advice and guidance throughout the drafting and negotiation of your lease, and help to ensure you understand your rights and obligations under that lease.  We know what makes a sound commercial lease agreement and can make certain any agreements you sign will not be detrimental to the ongoing success of your business.

We also have significant experience working with the Retail Leases Act in NSW and have a strong knowledge of the rules and regulations involved in retail leasing.  Whether you own retail premises, or you are looking to move your business into a new shop, we can help you to negotiate terms that will best suit your needs and explain the lease in plain English so that you know your obligations.
We can help you with:

  • Drafting and negotiating lease agreements 
  • Assigning, varying or surrendering your lease 
  • Enforcing the terms and conditions of your lease 
  • Any disputes you may have with your landlord or tenant 
  • Franchisee leasing and agreements
