Commercial Property and Leasing

Commercial Property acquisitions and dispositions involve ascertaining if the property is ideal for your business needs or that of the new owner to whom you are selling.

To often there is not enough communication between real estate agents vendors, purchasers and solicitors in the suitability of the property covering all the possible intended commercial usages.

Pambris Law has a solution to this problem a personalised service with a guarantee any commercial property bought or sold is done so for a fair market price.

To achieve this goal Pambris Law clarifies all permissible usages in the contractual selling documents and if you instruct can seek further DA approvals with local council and state authorities to improve usage rights.

Our Commercial Property service at Pambris Law is cost effective, quick and concise.

Pambris Law acts for any landlord or retail and commercial tenant who seek to Lease a property.

Rent, usage and square meters are seen to be the trinity of any transaction between a landlord and the retail or commercial tenant.

Those aspects are often the most important but true value to the landlord and tenant requires your solicitors to review all contractual components of the lease to ensure lease terms, conditions and representations are workable as a whole.

This involves a consideration of many aspects including:

• Area to be leased
• Condition of the premises
• Fitout
• Outgoings
• Make good obligations as against reasonable wear and tear
• Incentives: rent free periods
• Method of rental review: CPI or fixed increases
• Market rent concerns on option renewal
• Mortgagees consent and production fees
• Legal Fees and Stamp Duties
• Registration Fees

Leasing is also a particular area where various legislation may be applicable including:

Retail Leases Act 1994 (NSW)
Conveyancing Act 1919 (NSW)
Real Property Act 1900 (NSW)

any failure or an omission to comply with specific disclosures or notice requirements can render parts of a commercial or retail lease inoperative or leading to termination and/or rescission.

Pambris Law remains up to date with those legislative requirements to ensure that you as landlord or tenant are clear on all rights and obligations that relate to your retail or commercial lease both statutory and under the common law of NSW.

All those aspects will be neatly reflected in the lease documents to complete the transaction.

A workable solution. The correct one.
