Commercial leases in NSW are interests in commercial premises (for example, office buildings) that are granted by one person, the ‘landlord’, to another, the ‘tenant’.  They confer a right on the tenant to exclusive possession of the commercial premises for a certain period of time.  Commercial leases in NSW are generally not regulated by statute but by common law and the lease itself.

For the most part, however, it is up to the landlord and tenant to decide the terms of the commercial lease.  Some commercial leases relating to retail shops are governed by a special statutory regime contained in the Retail Leases Act 1994 (NSW).  Other rules affecting the creation of commercial leases are found in the Conveyancing Act 1919 (NSW) and the Real Property Act 1900 (NSW).

More recently though, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Regulations have been implemented to provide a number of protections for commercial lessees both within and outside of shopping centres. These cover matters such as rental relief, termination, and mediation of disputes.

We understand that these issues can be complex, both in terms of the negotiation and establishment stage, where no case is the same, and also in terms of disputes, where everybody’s circumstances are different. In approaching these matters, we draw on our broad experience in other areas, such as banking and finance, insolvency, commercial law and dispute resolution and litigation, to make sure our client’s interests are protected, whether during the drafting and negotiation of a lease or in a dispute concerning one.
