Leases - D'Angelo Legal Skip to content


D’Angelo Legal is experienced in offering leasing advice and is aware of the complex matters that need to be addressed in lease documents and the obligations of the lessor (landlord) and lessee (tenant).

A lease is a legally enforceable contract which confers a right on one person (the lessee) to possess property belonging to another person (the lessor). Leases are not limited to land; but can also include agreements for the use of plant and equipment. Our team places utmost importance on prompt, high quality and cost effective service, with advice provided in plain English.

Our services in relation to property leasing include:

  • Lease Reviews and Advice for Leases already in effect or proposed (new) leases for tenants;
  • Drafting and reviewing license agreements (such as pop-up shop leases and car bay licenses);
  • Lease Drafting including negotiation, preparation and advice on Commercial and Retail Leases;
  • Liaison with town planning and council authorities (if required); and
  • Lease Disputes relating to Leases.

Whether you are a landlord or a tenant, we will act in your best interests to ensure you understand what the lease says and that the same is negotiated to be a commercially fair and appropriate lease, in accordance with your instructions. Talk to us today about finding out how to achieve the most out of a lease prepared by us.


Lease Drafting, Reviews and Advice

Should you have a draft lease or have been provided with a final lease document to sign, it is strongly recommended prior to signing the document that you obtain legal advice on the lease documentation. It would also be prudent to involve a lawyer in the review and negotiation of an offer to lease, which forms the basis of the formal lease.

If the lease is for a retail shop, there is specific legislation in Western Australia that regulates and controls what is allowed to be in a retail shop lease and what is potentially void and it is recommended to have the lease reviewed prior to execution. A tenant cannot sign a retail lease earlier than 7 days after being provided the landlord’s disclosure statement and this ensures the tenant has time to obtain legal and financial advice as required.

At D’Angelo Legal we are kept updated and are well aware of the legal requirements relating to leases and the obligations of either party. We can provide you with advice in relation to the proposed lease agreement, including your obligations under the agreement, and any recommended changes that you should ask for prior to accepting and executing the lease agreement.
