Step-by-step guide to commercial leases (QLD) - On-demand
Course ID ID22052_PRO1
You can purchase and access this content at any time for up to 6 (six) months from the date of purchase.
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 Land Title Act 1994 (Qld) and the Retail Shop Leases Act 1994 (Qld). The relevant legislation uses the terms “lessor” and “lessee”. However, these terms are frequently confusing to a client, and can easily be mistyped, so many commercial leases now use “landlord” and “tenant”. This course will also use these simpler terms unless quoting legislation
This course is divided into 6 modules where you will explore:
- Getting started – knowing the basics
- Receive instructions
- Retail Shop Leases Act 1994 (QLD)
- 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 Shop Leases Act 1994 (QLD) 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.
