Our team of Sydney Commercial Lawyers have experience in dealing with complex lease matters, including leases with big corporate players and listed ASX100 companies. Our Commercial Lawyers deliver strategic and tactical advice regarding your rights and obligations under the lease, dispute resolution avenues available and the prospects of succeeding in a claim against the Landlord. Litigation is not the only means by which to resolve a dispute. Our Commercial Solicitors focus on assisting clients to resolve disputes in the most cost effective and efficient manner possible.

Disputes between landlord and tenant are common, especially when the rental rate is up for review or when the time comes to exercise an option to extend or terminate the lease or license. The two most common disputes between landlords and tenants arise when:

  • the tenant fails to pay rent or outgoings
  • the landlord fails to comply with one or more of their obligations with respect to maintenance of the property

Often, one party attempts to justify their actions or omissions by claiming that the opposite party had failed to meet their obligations under the terms of the lease or license. Although this may seem like the correct course of action at the time, the breach of a lease or license can lead to severe consequences. A contravention on the part of the other party may not permit you to fail to perform your obligations under the lease.

In our experience, many disputes between landlord and tenant arise due to miscommunications or misunderstandings of the rights and obligations imposed by the lease or license agreement. Our Commercial Lawyers have, in the past, resolved commercial disputes through negotiations, arbitration and mediation. We have also represented clients at NCAT and other Courts and are familiar with the processes, proceedings and requirements of each jurisdiction.

If you require assistance with a lease dispute, we recommend that you contact our office and arrange an appointment to see one of our Property & Personal Property Dispute Solicitors in our Sydney office. By appointment, we can also arrange a time for you to see one of our lawyers at a branch office. For a complete listing please see our "Locations" tab.
