In our opinion a commercial lease is the foundation of a good business for a tenant and also basis on which valuers and financiers assess the value of investment property. Having a good lease in place should be a fundamental consideration for every business owner and investor. A good lease is not just about rental return but a large number of other factors which include:
- lease term and rights or renewal;
- definition of permitted use;
- rent review mechanisms;
- right to recover property expenses and outgoings;
- quality of lessee and security provided to support the lessee’s obligations under the lease; and
- maintenance requirements and make good provisions at end of lease.
