Retail Leases and Agricultural Leases

Whether you’re renting out your property or looking to rent yourself, ensuring the rental lease is fair and thorough is an important step. We are here to help you through the rental process by drafting or looking over your lease and ensuring you get the best result possible.

Wakefield Vogrig & Boote Lawyers have drafted thousands of leases for properties all across Gippsland and beyond. Rest assured your rental needs are in good hands.

Do you need a lease drafted? 

Before allowing a tenant to take possession of your premises without a written agreement, consider contacting a firm with local experience. We have ample experience drafting successful leases in Gippsland as well as other areas and can advise you through the process of renting out your property. 

We can assist you with drafting a retail, commercial, or agricultural lease, preparing an agreement to lease where the premises are not yet built, calculating the correct rent, giving written notice to your tenant at pertinent dates, issuing notices to remedy breach of lease, and representing you in Victorian Small Business Commission mediations when disputes arise.

Our goal is to draft a lease to suit your needs, both now and into the future. 

Are you a potential tenant considering signing a lease?

From a tenant’s perspective, it is important to seek legal advice from an experienced commercial lawyer before entering a lease. Leases have the potential of negatively impacting your options at a later date, which is why it’s important to thoroughly look over the lease and negotiate your terms before you sign.

We can assist tenants with reviewing a proposed lease, negotiating the terms of the lease (including rent, transfer, options, duration, exit, and renewal options), and seeking consent from your landlord regarding a transfer of your lease.

Guiding you through the process of a market rent review
