A Lease is a legal contract between you and the property owner to lease the subject premises. It is highly recommended that you seek legal/business advice before signing any documents or entering into any lease arrangements. Leases in South Australia are governed by the Retail and Commercial Leases Act 1995 legislation. It is important to research and fully understand:

  • Council permitted uses for the premises
  • The length of the lease term (5 years or longer) 
  • Additional costs including outgoings 
  • The exact size of the premises 
  • Registering your lease
  • Bond Deposits & Guarantees
  • Disclosure statements
  • Annual rent increases – CPI, fixed percentage
  • End of the lease obligations
  • Termination of the lease
  • Making the premises good
