As a landlord you want to ensure 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. Stewart Law can assist you by ensuring the terms of your lease match your needs as a tenant or landlord.
