Hi guys, I purchased a business (in Victoria) as a going concern in November 2015. The existing commercial lease is a standard lease of real estate (Law Institute of Victoria Nov 2012 Revision) governed by the Retail Leases Act 2003. The landlord provided a written statement that he was prepared to have the remainder of the lease transferred to me. The outgoing tenant had asked the landlord to provide a current disclosure statement in accordance with section 61(5) of the Act along with a copy of the original lease. I received the original lease and the original disclosure statement but not a current disclosure statement. 9 months later, I still do not have a current disclosure statement nor an executed deed of transfer. To complicate matters further, within 2 months of taking over, major long-term disruptive works began (Level Crossing Removal Project) and are not scheduled to be completed until the end of the year. Given that the landlord had consented and a deed has not been executed, do I actually have a binding lease? What other options do I have? Any general help would be greatly appreciated.
