We can help you secure a better deal
Our experienced commercial lawyers can negotiate with the landlord on your behalf to secure a better deal on your commercial lease. We often save clients thousands of dollars by securing more favourable terms (such as rent-free periods or incentive payments). If you’ve never signed a lease before, you don’t know what to look for. Luckily, we have reviewed hundreds of leases!
What We Offer
What does the Lease Negotiation Support package include?
Our support package includes direct negotiation with the landlord (or their lawyer) on your behalf to request changes to the commercial lease. We normally have a good idea of areas where they may agree to changes, whereas some areas are usually ‘non-negotiable’. Our support also includes reviewing and advising you in relation to their responses to the change requests.

Frequently Asked Questions
There are many areas in a lease which are open to negotiation. It’s vital that you secure the best possible commercial terms for your business. An experienced lawyer will not only help you to review and understand the lease, but can also negotiate terms which are more balanced and fair to the tenant.
This can involve some back and forth so it’s normally in your best interest to limit your requests to things which are reasonable. Examples include the term of the lease (and option to extend), outgoings (utilities), sub-letting, rent-free periods and ‘make good’ costs at the end of the lease.
