Commercial Lease.

A Commercial Lease, sometimes called a Commercial Tenancy Agreement, are legally binding contracts between a business owner (referred to as the tenant or lessee) and the owner of the property (referred to as the landlord or lessor).

Commercial leasing is generally standardised for most commercial property, and we have developed fixed fee leases to suit most situations.

There is usually no need for us to meet with you (or your property agent) in person.  We can take instructions from you, and draft a commercial lease, all remotely, so we service the whole of Queensland.

However, we have offices in Brisbane and on the Sunshine Coast, so if we need to, or if you prefer, we can meet in person to prepare a commercial lease.

We have a quick and easy online enquiry portal for you to provide some basis information regarding the commercial lease, so we can provide a no obligation Fixed Fee proposal to you.
