Australian Retail Tenancy Laws have been developed to protect the interests of small business consumers, levelling the playing field for the parties involved.
The laws provide protection by ensuring that the prospective retail tenants are given sufficient information to make a sound business decision, whether they are entering into or renewing a Retail Shop Lease rental Agreement.
It doesn’t matter whether you are a landlord or a tenant, you need to understand your rights and responsibilities under the relevant legislation.
The retail tenancy law is very clear in most Australian states:
A landlord in a retail lease must not, in connection with the lease, engage in conduct that that is misleading or deceptive to a tenant or guarantor.
A party who suffers damage by reason of misleading or deceptive conduct of another party may make a claim for compensation.
