As a commercial tenant, you have a range of rights that are protected by law. These include the right to occupy the property in accordance with the terms of your lease, the right to a safe and healthy workplace, and the right to reasonable access to the premises.

It is important to ensure that your lease agreement clearly outlines your rights and obligations as a tenant. This will help to avoid any disputes or misunderstandings between you and your landlord.

Under the law, landlords are required to maintain the property in good condition and to make any necessary repairs in a timely manner. As a tenant, you also have the right to request repairs or maintenance work and to be compensated for any loss or damage caused by the landlord’s failure to do so.

If you are experiencing problems with your landlord, it is important to seek legal advice from a commercial lawyer as soon as possible.

Our Geelong commercial lawyers can help you understand your rights and options and can negotiate with your landlord on your behalf.
