Retail Shop Leases Act

The Retail Shop Leases Act provides strict requirements for Lessors Dislcosure, Assignor Dislcosure, Assignee Disclosure and the provision of Legal Advice and Finalcial Advice Certificates when dealing with leases. We can advise on all aspects of any dealings with a retail lease whether for the Landlord, tenant or assignee/buyer of a lease/business.
