Leasing

Commercial leasing and residential leasing: Our leasing lawyers have expertise in all aspects of leasing and act for both landlords and tenants in preparing and negotiating leases, enforcing lease terms and conditions and representing clients in lease disputes.

We have considerable experience in retail shop leasing. On 1 January 2013 the amendments to the Commercial Tenancy (Retail Shops) Agreements Act 1985 (WA) (the Act) and the Commercial Tenancy (Retail Shops) Agreements Regulations 1985 (the Regulations) came into effect. The amendments to the Act follow an extensive review of commercial tenancy law in Western Australia and seek to increase disclosure requirements for landlords and to enhance security of tenure for, and the negotiating power of, tenants.

Key amendments to the Act and Regulations include:

It is important that landlords are aware of, and comply with, the Act including the amendments. If a retail shop lease does not comply with the Act there is a risk that the provisions of the lease will be considered void.
