New disclosure requirements in retail shop leases

From 1 January 2011, the disclosure that landlords must provide to prospective tenants of retail shop leases will be expanded.

As part of the harmonisation of retail shop disclosure statements in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria, new disclosure requirements have been produced which aim to better inform tenants of their rights and obligations under a lease and assist landlords who own multiple shopping centres in multiple jurisdictions.

It is not yet known when the updated forms will be released, however we will endeavour to provide a link once they become available. In the meantime, for assistance as a landlord or a tenant in a retail shop lease, please contact Certus Legal Group.
