Leasing - commercial and retail

Australia has a dynamic commercial, industrial and retail leasing environment where legislative requirements and industry practices are continually evolving. The experts in our leasing team keep abreast of all of these changes and regularly publish books and articles on leasing law.

Our team have developed an easy-to-use and secure online status reporting system for our leasing clients with a large property portfolio, CBP Lease Manager. We have also developed an e-leasing platform to streamline the process for commercial and retail leases. 
 
Our clients come from both the public and private sectors. They include local consent authorities, educational institutions, developers, institutional investors, proprietors, owners corporations, property consultants, overseas investors, architects, builders and contractors.
