Tenants

The location of your business is a very important factor in its success. As a tenant, it is important to ensure that the duration of the lease is sufficient to meet your long term business objectives. If you are contemplating leasing a premises, we can guide you through the process and advise you on:

  • The tenant's and landlord's rights and obligations under the lease;
  • Who should be named as a party to the lease?
  • The best structure for asset protection purposes;
  • How rent is to be calculated and reviewed under the lease?
  • What is the permitted use of the premises and whether the definition of the permitted use is too narrow or restrictive?
  • How outgoings are calculated?
  • The liability to contribute to the landlord's outgoings;
  • Any other payments required under the lease;
  • Special or unusual terms or clauses;
  • Repayable security deposit or guarantees required;
  • Whether or not the lease contains an option to renew and or an option to assign;
  • Your rights and obligations at end of lease;
  • Consequences of breaching lease conditions.
