New Lease Tenant

Are you a tenant entering into a new lease?

As a Tenant entering into a new lease there are more considerations and potential pitfalls than what most could ever imagine. It is easy to get into a lease but our years of experience in lease disputes has taught us that leases are almost always not ‘tenant friendly’ and too often result in expensive, stressful problems for a tenant during, or at the end of, a lease.

Experience has taught us that getting the lease documentation right can save a tenant thousands, if not tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars.

For most tenants entering into a new lease is a major investment with fit-out and infrastructure and branding costs. We know that the success of some businesses may rely on the premises for the business to run effectively and successfully. Our experienced property lawyers will be able to guide you through the leasing process and be able to give you some of their experience and knowledge along the way.

Our law firm has years of experience in advising tenants on new leases and our advice can simplify and clarify the process for you.

Just some considerations that need to be taken into account are:

  • Lease term
  • Rent and rent review
  • Options to renew for further terms
  • Outgoings
  • Fit out
  • Make good

We assist many small to medium sized businesses and individuals in providing lease advice, negotiations and disputes. Whether your lease is for a retail premises or large factory facility, we will provide you with timely and considered advice.

Our lease lawyers are also experienced in providing advice across different industries and different types of premises.  We can quickly identify potential issues and know the right questions that will put you in the most informed position when entering into a new lease. We are well experienced in lease preparation and negotiation.

Many of our clients will involve us at the ‘offer to lease’ stage so as to help them consider what might be relevant at this crucial stage. Offer to lease documents, (also known as ‘heads of agreement’) are generally binding on the parties to the extent that the document outlines. It can be difficult to go back to renegotiate after this document has been signed, unless the document has been appropriately amended in the tenant’s favour.

At any stage you should obtain legal advice to ensure that you enter into a lease that will add value to your business and not take away from it.
