Commercial and retail lease agreements are crucial for both landlords and tenants in Victoria. These agreements outline the terms and conditions of the lease, including rent, maintenance, and obligations for both parties.

To prepare a lease agreement, it is important to understand the legal requirements and implications of each clause. A commercial lawyer can assist in drafting a lease agreement that meets legal requirements, protects the rights of both parties and minimises any risks of disputes down the line.

A well-drafted lease agreement can provide clarity and prevent misunderstandings between the landlord and tenant, as well as provide security for both parties. It is essential to consider all aspects of the lease agreement, including rent reviews, repairs and maintenance, options for renewal, and default provisions.

Failure to properly prepare a lease agreement can lead to costly and time-consuming disputes, so it is essential to have a lawyer review and prepare the agreement.
