Our lease dispute lawyers can help you understand your rights so you can make the right decision for your business.
A lease can be breached when one or both parties don’t follow the terms of the lease agreement. Perhaps your tenant hasn’t made their lease payments or your landlord hasn’t completed some essential repairs, every day can cost you money. The first step towards resolving the dispute is to understand what your rights and responsibilities are. You may be able to resolve the issue easily under the terms of your lease or try to negotiate a resolution. In many instances, lease breaches are an isolated issue that can be resolved swiftly without ending the lease.
There may also be several other options available to you like issuing a Notice of Breach, taking your case to the Victorian Small Business Commission (VSBC), the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) or court.
