Commercial Leasing & Retail Lease Differences

When it comes to business leases, there are two different types you will encounter—commercial and retail. Both types of leases have their own distinct characteristics, so it is important to understand the difference between them before signing any agreement.


Commercial leases are usually for office spaces, warehouses or other industrial buildings. These leases are generally longer than retail leases, and the rent is calculated on a square metre basis. Commercial leases also typically have more flexible terms and conditions than retail leases.



Retail leases are usually for shop spaces in shopping centres or standalone buildings. These leases are often shorter in length than commercial leases, and the rent is calculated on a per annum basis. Retail leases also have more restrictive terms and conditions than commercial leases.

Do I need a Solicitor

There are many legal aspects to signing a commercial or retail lease. A Solicitor can advise you on the terms of the lease, what your rights and obligations are, and help negotiate any changes to the lease.


They can also review the contract for you before you sign it.


A Solicitor can also help you if there are any problems with your lease. For example, if your landlord tries to raise your rent or if you want to get out of your lease early, a Solicitor can help you negotiate with your landlord.



Hiring a Solicitor may seem like an unnecessary expense, but it could save you a lot of money in the long run. If you have any questions about your lease, please contact our team.


The NSW Small Business Commissioner has helpful information regarding the National Code of Conduct for Commercial Tenancies and information about tenancy disputes.
