Retail Leases

– our Retail Lease Service

Wakefield Vogrig & Boote Lawyers have drafted thousands of leases for properties all across Gippsland and beyond.

Before allowing a tenant to take possession of your premises without a written agreement, consider engaging a firm with local experience and proven success to draft a lease to suit your needs, both now and into the future.

From a tenant’s perspective, it is important to seek legal advice from an experienced commercial lawyer before entering a lease as it has the potential of becoming a negative impact on your options at a later date.

We can professionally assist you with:

  • Drafting a retail, commercial or agricultural lease;
