When Should You See a Commercial Leasing Lawyer in Perth?
Engaging the services of a commercial leasing lawyer is a prudent measure that will likely benefit you in the long run. Advice in the beginning stages of commercial tenancy will help to avoid future lease disputes.
It’s helpful to seek legal advice in the following scenarios:
What Is the Difference Between a Retail and Commercial Lease in Western Australia?
In Western Australia, retail leases generally involve properties where goods or services are sold to consumers, while commercial leases encompass office spaces, industrial areas, or warehouses.
Any retail lease is governed by the Commercial Tenancy (Retail Shops) Agreements Act 1985, which provides more protections to tenants, such as limitations on certain costs passed on by landlords to tenants, and requirements for detailed disclosure documents about the property and lease.
Commercial leases do not offer these protections. In terms of cost, retail leases often have a different structure, which can be more tenant-friendly compared to commercial leases.
What Are Some Things to Look Out for Before Signing a Commercial Lease?
Before you go to sign a commercial lease, it’s critical to pay attention to several key aspects to ensure that the agreement aligns with your existing business needs and objectives and to avoid future disputes. Mistakes at the beginning could make or break your new business and lawyers can provide professional advice to avoid this.
Considering the complexity and legal ramifications of a commercial lease, it’s advisable to consult a specialist commercial lease lawyer with expertise in property law to review the lease before signing. This helps to ensure that your interests are protected and that you have a clear understanding of your obligations and rights under the commercial lease agreement.

If only all people were so helpful the world would be a better place. Excellent is the word to describe their work.
Paul Summers and his team are the best legal team I know in Perth. The very best commercial outcome.
I have personally used Paul Summers and Summerslegal to act on behalf of a number of companies that I have been involved with both in the private and public sectors over the last 20 years. His advice and the advice of his firm has always been excellent and I can highly recommend his services and often do!
After a lengthy and drawn out business purchase, I’m so glad to have come across Paul Summers. Despite never having met (located interstate but needing a WA based solicitor) Paul treated us like long time clients and looked after us right throughout. We are so grateful – thank you!
Absolutely blown away by Paul Summers. Despite being new to property development and not knowing a lot about Shareholders/Joint venture Agreements etc he took me seriously and invested his time to help and guide me in the right direction. Other lawyers, I called just put me in the too hard basket. Definitely recommend his service.
A professional, timely and well-executed job with my legal matter. Thanks, Paul!
