Leasing & Tenancy Disputes

Expert Legal Advice for Tenants & Landlords

Burgess Rawson couldn’t recommend Construction Legal highly enough; specifically their ability to understand complex legal issues and have them resolved in commercial concise time frames.

Construction Legal is experienced in reviewing and negotiating commercial and retail lease documentation.

Lease documentation

Given that there is no ‘one size fits all’ commercial lease agreement, lease agreements often favour landlords more than tenants (or on the rare occasion, vice versa). It is therefore important that the commercial and financial considerations specific to the transaction are identified and properly reflected in the lease documentation.

We can negotiate and prepare all types of leasing and associated documentation in accordance with your needs, including

  • Commercial leases
  • Retail Leases
  • Heads of agreement
  • Agreements for Lease
  • Disclosure statements
  • Incentive deeds
  • Extensions of Lease
  • Termination of Lease
  • Assignment of Lease
  • Variation of Lease
  • Registration of a Lease on the Title

Retail Leasing

If your lease is governed by the Retail Leases Act 1994, we can also advise on:

  • Rights and obligations under the Retail Leases Act 1994
  • Compliance requirements for leases as governed by the Retail Leases Act 1994
  • Important issues to be considered and included in leases of retail or commercial premises

Tenancy Disputes

Construction Legal also has years of experiencing in commercial and retail leasing disputes and can assist you with

  • Advice on lease dispute
  • Negotiation and Mediation of a lease dispute
  • Legal representation at NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal and Supreme Court
  • Obtaining possession orders from the Supreme Court
  • Obtaining Writs for Possession from the Sheriff’s office

Whether you are a landlord or tenant, you need expert legal advice regarding your lease to ensure that your interests and rights are protected and properly reflected in the documentation. Call us today for a free consultation regarding leasing and tenancy.
