Retail Leases Comparative Analysis

For a retail landlord or retail tenant, retail tenancy legislation can be a minefield, a trap for young players and a downright headache. The fact that each State has its own Act (each inconsistent with the other, and each inescapable), makes property managers long for a career move.

We have tried to make our job and yours easier by preparing a user-friendly analysis of retail tenancy legislation.

The analysis allows you to compare provisions of the legislation in one jurisdiction against legislation in other jurisdictions.

This update is current for all jurisdictions as at 1 January 2022. 

State and Territory responses to COVID-19 have also had a temporary impact on retail leases. Further details in relation to the COVID-19 responses for each State and Territory can be accessed here.

Clayton Utz has extensive expertise in acting for landlords and tenants on retail tenancy matters and on shopping centre and commercial property acquisitions, joint ventures, sales and development matters generally.
