Signing a commercial lease for your business can seem like a relatively simple process, at least at first. You sign an agreement, get the keys to your new office or retail space and get started moving your business into the new location. What could go wrong?
Because of this perceived simplicity, many business owners neglect to consult a commercial leasing lawyer in Perth before signing a commercial lease. While this strategy can work out just fine in certain cases, it also isn’t worth the risk. Your contract may be written in such a way that isn’t in your best interests, giving the landlord or property owner more rights and power than they should have.
A professional commercial leasing lawyer in Perth can review your lease, explain clauses that you may not understand, identify details that aren’t ideal for you and your business and assist you in negotiating more agreeable terms with the other party. While the lease may be acceptable as written, it is always a good idea to check with a lawyer just in case. If you do need to request changes, it is helpful to have the weight of legal representation in your corner.
