LEASING

Toowoomba's Specialist Leasing Lawyers

It’s easy to think that you don’t need a lawyer to draft or review your lease – leases are all ‘standard’ right? Wrong! There is no such thing as a ‘standard’ lease and lease terms can vary considerably, depending on what law firm prepares the lease. Even when a real estate agent prepares a ‘short form’ lease, the special conditions might (and should) vary, depending on the specifics of the property and the commercial agreement reached between the parties.

Many landlords and tenants don’t realise that there are very few ‘implied terms’ in leases – this means that if the lease terms don’t specifically give you a right or impose an obligation (for example, to require the landlord to make sure that the building is water tight), then you cannot enforce those rights against the other party.

Enterprise Legal’s Property Law Director Peta Gray, has drafted or reviewed hundreds of leases over the course of her career. Peta knows that leasing requires a highly-experienced, well-trained eye, as well as an aptitude for negotiating a better position for clients. Leasing a property is one of the biggest financial commitments that a tenant can make and conversely, it is very important for a landlord to protect their valuable assets, so don’t leave these matters up to chance – engage our expert leasing lawyers to assist you.
