Why you need a written retail lease agreement

This Retail Lease Agreement Kit for NSW will get you started on the right foot and establish a clear and professional relationship with your retail tenant.

Protect your business investment, comply with NSW retail tenancy laws and save on lawyer fees.

Having a clear written lease means that you and your tenant can be on the same page in relation to how you wish to conduct your business relationship and the key terms that are important to you, such as:

  • the amount and timing of rent payments,
  • consequences of failure to pay rent on time,
  • the length of the lease and any option to renew it,
  • insurance obligations.

This Commercial Retail Lease Kit can be used for most shops in NSW. Its not intended for retail shopping centres. If you need a non-retail lease, you can use a Commercial Lease Kit – NSW.

You can reuse this retail lease agreement kit many times. For example, if you have more than one retail shop and/or if you have a new retail tenant come on board, then you can simply amend the information in the document to reflect the new tenant and/or retail shop details.
