I need help to prepare a new lease or review an existing lease on a commercial property
Whether you are a tenant or a landlord, a good lease for your business is vital and could mean the difference between your business success or failure. A poor leasing decision can be a costly mistake as a lease is usually central to the goodwill, value, and future sale of your business if you are the tenant or to the future value of your commercial property if you are the landlord. In business it is particularly important to get the right advice before entering into a lease or you could face significant and far-reaching consequences. Furthermore, the underlying lease transaction can have GST, taxation, stamp duty and other consequences which we can advise you on and how best to minimise any potential liabilities. We are happy to work in conjunction with your Accountant or financial advisor. Whether you are a landlord or a tenant we can advise you about the pitfalls associated with many commercial lease agreements and compliance with the Retail and Commercial Leases Act and the Real Property Act If at any time you are involved in a lease dispute in relation to property or equipment, we would be happy to assist you in resolving the matter quickly and with minimal disruption to your business through dispute resolution or litigation.
