Our leasing team has extensive experience in preparing, reviewing and advising on retail and commercial leases.

If you are a landlord ,we work to ensure the efficient management of your property rental income streams, whether it be preparing and negotiating leases, acting on assignments of lease, extending, amending or surrendering leases or recovering unpaid rent, you can be assured that our team will manage the project competently and cost efficiently.

If you are a tenant, rental costs represent a significant proportion of overheads and it is important that you engage professionals to review your lease before entering into a long term relationship that may have long term negative consequences for your business. We can review and negotiate your retail or commercial lease so that you have certainty with regard to the key terms along with the comfort that there are no “hidden conditions” that will later become detrimental to your business. Where necessary, we can also advise on your obligations to ensure you comply with the Retail Shop leases Act 1994.

Our experience includes:

  • Leasing for retail shopping centres of all sizes
  • Leasing for commercial and industrial complexes
  • Acting for landlords who wish to evict tenants, and
  • Acting for tenants who do not wish to be evicted
  • General leasing disputes
