A Deed of Leases contain terms and conditions that affect every party to the lease. Whether you are a landlord, a tenant or a guarantor, there are provisions in a lease and statutes in Western Australia that affect your rights and obligations. Some lease obligations are designed to be enforceable against you even after a lease has been assigned or terminated.
In Western Australia, the Commercial Tenancy (Retail Shops) Agreements Act 1985 (WA) contains provisions to protect the interest of commercial tenants. This legislation deems void certain types of provisions in a retail shop leases, most of the time, to the detriment of landlords. Retail landlords and tenant would benefit from the free information available on the Small Business Development Corporation website.
