Leasing premises is the biggest decision that you will make. It will either make or break you. Good leases will be balanced and follow reasonable commercial leasing practice. A harsh lease includes onerous conditions which will make it difficult for a tenant to ever prosper and grow their business.
Leases fall into two broad categories – Retail Shops or Commercial Leases. The difference between the two is significant. Retail Shop leases are governed by specific legislation and tenants have greater rights and protections than ordinary commercial leasing tenants. Retail Shop leases also need to be drafted so as to ensure they don’t breach any of the specific retail shop leasing legislation other consequences to a landlord can be significant. Our leasing lawyers know what category will apply to your particular circumstances.
Commercial leases though are not governed by the retail shop leasing legislation and as a result the tenant does not have the protection such legislation affords. There is greater risk for a tenant in this situation. They are at risk of being stuck with a long term lease which imposes substantial obligations on them with little or no ability to challenge the validity of such obligations.
