Whether you’re working in an office space, a retail store, industrial premises, or any property you need to use for your business but don’t already own, you’ll need to put together a commercial lease agreement.
A commercial lease can be quite complex as it covers what the property or office space can be used for, restrictions, breaches of lease, the use of storage facilities, trading hours, and even what happens should either party become insolvent. Because of this it’s incredibly important, both for you and your business, that an experienced commercial lawyer either drafts or reviews commercial lease documents.
Commercial Leasing Lawyers
Our experienced commercial lawyers work to draft commercial lease documents to accurately reflect the agreement struck between parties, or to review lease documents to highlight and renegotiate and onerous terms.
The clauses in commercial leases can bind the parties for 15 years or more in some cases, so it is essential the agreement is drafted by a skilled commercial contract writer.

Commercial Leasing on the Gold Coast
Commercial leasing on the Gold Coast is essentially the same process as it is throughout Queensland.
The redevelopment of Pacific Fair was distinguished by the extensive use of lease clauses which referred to the commencement of trading by anchor tenants such as David Jones, instead of set dates. These event based definitions of lease commencement meant that the many retail leases entered into were not invalidated by delays in the construction timetable.
By having an experienced commercial lawyer review your commercial lease you can be advised on what these clauses mean for you, so you can make an informed decision before signing.
