Two Key Steps to a Queensland Retail Property Lease Agreement

If you have a retail property or shop that you wish to rent out in Queensdland, you need to be familiar with the fundemental steps in the retail leasing agreement process. There are certain requirement that must be met in order to comply with the Retail Lease Act

You might be tempted to skip these steps and give the tenant early possession but we caution you to resist that urge for the following reasons.
