Commercial Lease Disputes in Sydney

Our Sydney lawyers are experienced in dealing with commercial lease disputes.

We represent both landlords and tenants across the full range of leasing issues, including:

  • Breach of Lease, including issuing and Notices of Breach and responding to them
  • Termination of Lease
  • Money matters including non-payment of Rent and Outgoings
  • Damage to Premises
  • Rent Review
  • Lockout
  • Quiet Enjoyment of Premises
  • Leaking Roof
  • Exercise of Option for Further Term
  • Sublease Disputes (including consent to lease)
  • Premises Maintenance
  • Security Deposit Disputes
  • Assignment of Lease Disputes
  • Outgoings Disputes
  • Eviction Disputes
  • Insolvency
  • Personal Property Security Disputes

The usual first step is to send a letter to the other party setting out your legal position.

We do this to ensure that the other party is aware of where you stand and how you would like the dispute resolved. By sending this letter, we are demonstrating that you are very serious about your dispute.

Mediation can produce good outcomes.

For some kinds of leases, such as Retail Leases, mediation is a compulsory step in the dispute resolution process before applying to NCAT or a court. We have represented numerous clients in their lease mediations. Mediation is a cost effective way of coming to a mutually agreed outcome.

Choosing to be represented by a lawyer during mediation is highly advantageous as the legal issues are usually complex. Our experienced lawyer in Sydney will almost invariably negotiate you a better outcome, by setting out the legal issues at hand and helping to focus the other party’s mind on the strengths of your case and the weaknesses of their case.

Even if mediation isn’t compulsory, it is an intelligent second step to take, as it is a faster and more affordable alternative to litigation and often works well in lease disputes.

If the dispute cannot be quickly resolved, or if urgent circumstances require it (for example, in the case of the termination of a lease or lock out by a landlord), we are very experienced in both landlord and tenant court representation. Our lawyers in Sydney have experience across all jurisdictions, so your case will be in the most capable of hands.
