FAQs about commercial lease laws

We strongly recommend getting legal advice before signing a commercial lease to ensure all parties understand their rights. 

Commercial leases are complicated long-term agreements. It’s important to ensure your rights are upheld throughout your lease. 

A lease check gives everyone a clear sense of their responsibilities, which can reduce the chance of disagreements down the track. 

Some commercial leases carry hidden costs and regulations that can require mediation. Getting your lease checked before signing reduces the chance of unnecessary conflict. 

Consulting a commercial lease lawyer allows you to customise your lease agreement with any unique and important specifications. This ensures your rights are properly looked after and takes the weight of negotiation off your shoulders.

Yes, each state in Australia has different commercial lease laws. All commercial leases in New South Wales are governed under the Conveyancing Act 1919 and the Real Property Act 1900. Retail leases are also governed under the Retail Leases Act 1994.

A bank guarantee is an agreement that the tenant’s bank will pay an agreed-upon amount to the tenant’s landlord if the tenant breaks the lease conditions — for example if the tenant cannot make a payment. Bank guarantees provide security for landlords by ensuring that payment will not be hindered if the tenant experiences financial hardship.

Bank guarantees can be used in addition to or in place of personal guarantees or security bonds, depending on the conditions of the lease. Tenants generally provide security to the bank through commercial assets or real estate.

If your landlord doesn’t respond to your requests, we recommend sending a registered letter. Sending a registered letter provides proof of mailing which shows that you have attempted to contact your landlord. It also acts as evidence if you need to take legal action down the line.

We also suggest contacting your landlord’s property management company. If this fails, we recommend consulting with one of our expert commercial lease lawyers to discuss your options.

If you’re a tenant who needs to get out of their lease, you must obtain a mutual agreement between you and your landlord. 

There are two main ways to obtain a mutual lease termination agreement. 

  1. Early exit settlement. See if your landlord is open to receiving a financial settlement for terminating your lease. The amount will have to be agreed upon in the form of a surrender of lease document signed by both parties.

  2. Find a tenant to take over your lease. Another option is finding another tenant to take over the remainder of your current lease. Your landlord may choose to use your current lease or create a new lease for the next tenant.

We’ll negotiate a fair lease termination between you and your landlord. Get in touch with our expert commercial lease lawyers for more information.
