Commercial Leases & Commercial Lease Agreement Lawyer Melbourne

As we all know, a lease is a legally binding agreement forged between two or more parties in the context of a commercial relationship. It defines the rights as well as obligations of all parties involved. Getting the commercial lease right is vital as it will be the foundation for building the commercial relationship. As a leading legal firm, Daniel Lawyers & Associates have both the experience as well as expertise in commercial leases of Victoria. Our legal solicitors are aware of the various pitfalls to be wary of while negotiating a lease. Moreover, we understand the importance of ensuring the lease as it reflects the agreement upon which the business relationship was built.

On a more practical ground, we at Daniel Lawyers & Associates believe that expert legal advice which guarantees the best possible outcomes can only be given by those who have a working knowledge of Common Law, the Property Law Act, and Retail Leases Act. Furthermore, it is also essential for the commercial lease lawyer to have extensive experience as well as a clear understanding of the various competing interests. We have experienced commercial lease lawyers who comprehend these factors and are capable of negotiating deals that protect the interests of the parties involved.

2 stages in commercial lease transactions:

Initial Stage:

The first stage consists of the initial negotiation. At the initial stage, commercial lease lawyers of Daniel Lawyers & Associates draft a critically important document, which is the initial agreement for lease. This document is also known as a lease offer. It accurately records the understanding of all the parties involved.

Final Stage:

This stage involves the preparation of the formal lease document. Furthermore, this formal lease document will be based on the initial lease offer. As a firm, we advise our clients to proffer their attention to issues, regardless of the simplicity or complexity of the terms in the lease. Given below are some such situations:

  • Has entered into a legally binding lease offer.
  • Tenants make good obligations at the end of the lease.
  • If the lease for retail premises is governed by the Retail Leases Act.
  • If the rent review or market review mechanism is appropriate for a particular kind of lease.
  • Does the Disclosure Statement comply with the Retail Leases Act?
  • Additionally, apart from the rent, are all outgoings to be charged recoverable? Do the outgoings include capital works or expenses,
  • occupational health and other safety compliance or expenses?
  • What is the lease term?
  • Are there mandatory trading hours?
  • Is the tenant entitled to a minimum 5-year term?
  • The terms of any personal guarantees or bank guarantees, or even security bonds that may be required.
  • The period during which a tenant must exercise an option to renew the lease.
  • Has a pre lease condition report been prepared?
  • Does the tenant intend to undertake work or some other brand-new fit-out?
  • Does the intended use by the tenant comply with a Planning Permit?
  • Does the tenant need any licenses to run their business?

Joanne is one of the most polite, caring and understanding legal professionals I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. She turned what looked like a non-winnable case into a successful case. I found her amazing, understanding and very considerate to the circumstances that had occurred. I would recommend her to anyone without a second thought. My sincere thanks Joanne.

Thankfully we have had very little dealings with lawyers so really wasn’t sure what to expect when engaging Joanne and her team to assist us with probate and the sale of our estate. I sent out several web enquiries and Joanne was only one of a very few that responded. So without hesitation we engaged the practise. Joanne is incredibly efficient with most emails literally getting answered within 30 seconds. She answers all queries with consummate professionalism and at no point have we been left wondering how things work during this very arduous process. Sometimes if we had forgotten to sign a form she would even send a staff member over to home to get us to sign. We have both been overwhelmed at her service and also the fees which are so much less then the bigger firms. We would recommend her and her team in a heartbeat.
