Commercial Leases

As a landlord you want your tenant takes care of your property. As a tenant you don’t want to have to be liable for any additional costs. The terms of your lease can protect you from these risks. A commercial lease is a legally binding agreement between a business owner and the owner of a property.

Before signing a lease you should seek legal advice. The terms of a commercial lease are usually more complex than a residential lease as they are customised to the individual situation. Commercial leases are also governed by complex legislation such as the Retail Lease Act.
