Commercial Property and Leasing
You’re looking at taking out a lease for your business and you’re excited, until the property agent hands you a mountain of paper to sign. Or perhaps you own a commercial property and are looking for a tenant but have heard ‘the stories’ of tenants going ‘rogue’. Entering into a commercial lease can be daunting, for both landlords and tenants, and it’s critical that all parties understand their rights and obligations in order to protect their respective assets, being the property, any equipment and the business.
We assist both landlords and tenants with:
- Preparing and negotiating heads of agreement and lease terms
- Retail leasing
- Commercial leasing
- Sub-leases, licences and assignments
Wills and Estate Planning
You know you should and it’s been on your ‘to do’ list forever but… [‘insert your excuse here’]. We understand that discussing your estate plan does not evoke a sense of enthusiasm in many people, but it’s so important. You spend your life working hard, raising and looking after your family and loved ones, saving and making plans for your retirement but what about beyond? We can help you have these discussions so you can make informed decisions about your future.
Estate planning is more than just having a will, and we can assist you with considering the nature and structure of your assets together with your family circumstances and prepare:
- Simple wills
- Testamentary trust wills
- Powers of attorney
- Business succession plans
