I worked with Mark Harley and his team at Boss on a recent sale of a business. It was my first business sale and I really didn't have a clue about the process or contracts.

Mark took me through the process  step-by-step and worked seamlessly with my accountant to make the sale as simple and stress-free as it could be. Mark was extra helpful when we had a few bumps in the road and patiently answered all my stupid questions... even when I asked the same question a few times. As well as being easy to work with, Mark was responsive, efficient, and always on time to meet deadlines and - most importantly - we closed the deal. I'm now launching two new businesses and Mark and Boss will be a permanent fixture on my "dream team" of advisers and I will gladly recommend him to anyone in need of  legal services. Thanks Mark and the Boss crew!

For expert Legal Advice On Your Commercial Lease

    Commercial Lease Lawyer Brisbane

    Being a landlord is a rich and rewarding career that puts your skill to the test each day, but those who are up for the challenge would not want it any other way. You probably wake up ready to take on the issues that will come your way.

    You love what you do and take every step possible to protect yourself from the unthinkable, but issues can sneak up when you least expect it. Whether you are a full- or part-time landlord, you need legal advice you can trust if you would like to avoid lawsuits and other bad situations. Having a commercial lease lawyer Brisbane safeguards your future and allows you to put your worries to rest because you will be in the best possible hands.

    Make Leasing Simple

    A lot of landlords are quick to discover that the legal landscape surrounding their new career is often complicated and overwhelming. In fact, many business professionals dream of becoming landlords until they learn about the paperwork and regulations involved.

    Taking a wrong step opens you to the possibility of lawsuits and other dangers that can hurt your bottom line, and some landlords fail to recover from the threat. For example, you could violate a tenant’s rights by mistake and find yourself on the wrong side of a lawsuit. You could also face a legal dilemma and not know what path protects you from harm, which is not a pleasant situation to experience.

    The caring lawyers on our team are here when you need them, reviewing your questions and pointing you down the correct path. Many people come to us because they have trouble understanding legal jargon or knowing what to do when they encounter certain problems. While some landlords look up the information online, that option is not always the best. Laws and regulations can change in the blink of an eye.

    Unless you stay updated on the latest developments, making costly legal mistakes is too easy. You can speak with us when you need help keeping your business on the right side of the law. Our caring experts are invested in your success and will do what it takes to keep you on the correct path at all times.

    Craft Lease Documents

    As a landlord, lease documents are one of the biggest parts of your career. Your lease document defines the terms to which the tenant agrees when opting to live on your property. It’s vital you make sure you cover all your bases so that you don’t create a harmful situation from which escape is difficult. You must outline the way you and your tenants will interact as well as when they need to pay rent each month.

    When creating a lease, you will list the number of people who can reside in each unit and what you will do if tenants opt to let someone else move in with them. If you overlook something while crafting a lease, you could face lawsuits and other unpleasant situations you might want to avoid. Protecting yourself from that problem is much easier when you work with knowledgeable legal experts who care about your results as much as you do.

    If you want to make sure your lease agreement covers all your bases, we can do the job and make sure you have nothing to fear. We can also review leases you have already created and address any problems that might be present. Letting us handle your lease documents is a wise move if you want to enjoy favorable results while minimizing the risk.

    Handle Defaults

    All landlords fear the day one of their tenants stops paying rent because these situations are never easy to resolve. Forcing someone to leave their home can create a lot of stress and other unpleasant emotions, but that is just the start.

    Taking wrong steps or handling the situation the wrong way can make your problem much worse than it already is. Taking care to follow the proper protocols is vital when you evict someone from your property for not making payments. If the tenant is willing to try catching up, working out an agreement is often easier than trying to find new tenants and battling possible lawsuits. Either way, we can do this part of your business for you.

    Handle Business Transfers

    Buying or selling a rental property is often exciting because you are either gaining a new investment or getting additional funds to launch other projects on which you have been working. Most landlords do property transfers on their own without much trouble, but you can face a variety of problems if you make any mistakes during the process.

    For example, you must give your tenants advanced notice if you acquire a property and intend to increase their rent. You must make sure you follow the law when you implement other policy changes that could impact your residents. Knowing when you need to give notice and how far in advance you must do so is not always straightforward.

    To make the matter even worse, the laws change so much that keeping up is next to impossible. Let your transaction move forward without problems by letting a caring lawyer manage the process. You protect yourself from liability and give yourself peace of mind, knowing you won’t face legal trouble in the future.
