What is a Commercial Lease?

Greyson Legal | Leasing Lawyers Redcliffe is your all in one law firm for legal advice and assistance with commercial leasing.

A commercial lease sets out the contractual terms and conditions of the relationship between a Landlord (Lessor) and a Tenant (Lessee) and in respect of the occupancy and use by the Tenant of  freehold premises owned by a Landlord.

Many business owners in Redcliffe, North Lakes, north Brisbane and the Moreton Bay region, Queensland utilise commercial premises to conduct their business.

As a commercial lease is a form of contract, it is important both the Landlord and Tenant understand the lease terms and conditions, and their respective rights and obligations.

Retail Shop Lease | Queensland

Retail leasing can be a complex area of law. Generally, each State  and Territory in Australia has its own legislation, which legislation is not necessarily consistent. This can be a challenge for Landlords if they have retail premises in more than one State or Territory.

If you need retail shop leasing lawyer in Redcliffe, Greyson Legal | Redcliffe Leasing Lawyers can help you.

When entering into a retail shop lease it is important to understand not only your rights and obligations under the Lease documentation itself, but in addition checks need to be made to ensure compliance with the Retail Shop Leases Act 1994 (Qld) and other applicable laws.
