In this short course, you will learn about commercial leases; that is, leases of premises that are to be used for commercial as distinct from residential purposes, such as shops, factories and offices. 

This course is confined to leases of land under the Real Property Act 1900 (NSW) (RPA). The terms and conditions of leases of land under the old system title are substantially similar to Torrens Title leases, but there are some differences relating to their form, title and registration.

This course is divided into 6 modules where you will explore:

  • Getting started – knowing the basics
  • Receive instructions
  • Retail Leases Act 1994 (NSW)
  • Prepare and submit the lease
  • Negotiate and amend the lease
  • Execute and register the lease

On completion of this course you will be able to:

  • Advise a client on entering into a commercial lease from both landlord’s (lessor) and tenant’s (lessee) perspectives
  • Determine whether the Retail Leases Act 1994 (NSW) will apply to the transaction
  • Carry out the steps in a commercial lease starting from receiving instructions through to registration
  • Identify the amendments required to a lease clause

At the end of this on-demand course, you may claim 2 CPD points. Please consult the CPD rules for your State/Territory to ascertain how many CPD points you can claim for private study of audio/visual material during the CPD year.

Due to new reporting requirements introduced by the Legal Practice Board of Western Australia on 1 April 2021, practitioners holding WA practising certificates are not currently eligible to claim CPD points for this product.
