Before entering into any contractual leasing arrangement, you should understand your rights, responsibilities and expectations. If unsure, seek legal advice. The lease usually defines:
For new retail premises, the landlord and prospective tenant will negotiate the rent and decide upon the figure.
For existing leases, rent will be determined by the rent review provisions in the lease as well as specifications in the lease.
If renewing a lease, the lease document usually provides for a market review of the rent to determine the value. In this case, a range of factors are considered, for example, the location, size and condition of the premises.
The tenant is generally responsible for keeping the premises clean and in good order. Subject to ‘fair wear and tear’, the premises must be kept in the same condition as when the lease begins. This includes:
The landlord is normally responsible for maintaining and replacing fixtures of a structural nature unless such repair is required due to the negligent act or failure to act by the tenant or due to its specific use of the premises.
A transfer or assignment document must be prepared and signed by all parties involved. However, when a lease is assigned or transferred to another party, the Retail and Commercial Lease Act sets strict guidelines that must be followed. The continuing liability of a tenant who assigns a lease is limited to a maximum period of two years but only if the guidelines are followed.
If no option exists, the landlord must notify the tenant in writing within 6-12 months of the lease expiry whether the landlord will offer a lease renewal or not, and if so, the terms of any renewal.
If an option exists, the landlord must notify the tenant of the last date the tenant can exercise the option, 6-12 months before that date. An option may not be actionable by the tenant if they have not remedied any notified lease default or have persistently defaulted throughout the term of the lease.
If an option is exercised or the lease is to be renewed, the landlord must provide a disclosure statement at least 21 days prior to the end of the lease. The landlord must return the security deposit plus interest as soon as practicable after the lease ends, provided the tenant has performed all of its obligations under the lease.
