The most common cause of commercial or retail leasing disputes is breaching a lease agreement, or by failing to uphold obligations dictated by the law. Breaches from tenants can come in the form of non-payment of rent and refusing to vacate by a certain date. Breaches from landlords can arise when a landlord unfairly breaches the rights of a tenant, or fails to uphold their obligations for things like repairs.
Here's how to effectively resolve a breach of a lease agreement:
"AANDI are very easy to deal with. Always prompt service with informative and timely communication. We will be using them for all our legal needs from now on."
"Leigh and his team provided excellent service and made my claim process seamless when i was being pressured by my insurance company to use their preferred repairer, highly recommend."
To help businesses survive lockdowns and the fallout from COVID-19, rules and regulations were brought in place to protect the rights of commercial tenants. As it stands, tenants are able to negotiate rental relief with landlords. When these concessions are removed, tenants may face financial difficulties that can affect the business.
The federal government's commercial leasing regulations and protections for commercial tenants are due to be wound back soon. This will likely result in many leasing disputes between landlords and tenants.
It is essential that you understand your rights, whether you are a tenant or a landlord. There is a lot of misunderstanding and misinformation in the business community around these regulations. To overcome these challenges, you need a commercial leasing dispute lawyer in your corner for mediation.
