Experts in retail leasing

Retail leases differ significantly from other lease types, often leading to disputes over legislated time limits. Non-compliance can result in complex repercussions for all involved parties.

Initiating a new lease requires agreeing on terms and meeting all contract conditions.

For instance, strict disclosure obligations must be followed if you’re a landlord or lessor. Failure to provide the disclosure document within the required time frame might give the tenant, or lessee, the right to terminate the lease within six months.

A common mistake among self-managed properties is neglecting to remind the tenant about lease renewal. Such an oversight could potentially lead to financial repercussions. Therefore, it’s crucial to be vigilant about meeting all obligations to avoid unnecessary complications.
