About the webinar

Retail leasing legislative reform in New South Wales has been on the government agenda since April 2008. The changes canvassed will affect both landlord and tenant. This session is an up-to-the-minute primer on retail leases and covers: 

  • Legislative reforms – understanding the key changes
  • How long can a retail lease term be?
  • What are permitted uses for retail leases?
  • Are there limits to the amount of rent that can be charged?
  • Assignment and subleasing – the issue of landlord consents
  • Option to renew – what could possibly go wrong?
  • Holding over period:
    • what are the parties’ legal positions at this time?
    • what if you vary the terms during the holding over period?
    • when is it better for both sides to enter into a new lease?
  • Can a landlord or tenant avoid being locked into an unwanted retail lease?
  • Relief against forfeiture of the lease
  • Termination of leases – the termination clause and its effects

Attending a TEN webinar couldn’t be easier. Basically it’s just like attending a seminar except that you don’t have to leave the comfort of your office or home. You just need to be available at the appointed date and time with your computer and internet connection.

Once you’ve registered for the webinar, we send you a link so that you can login to the webinar from your computer. The speaker delivers the session from their computer in real time. Just like a live seminar, you can ask questions of the speaker. You simply type your question into the question box and the speaker responds to it during question time.
At the end of the webinar session we send you a certificate to confirm your attendance and the number of CPD hours you earned.

You will need a computer with sound, an internet connection and earphones if you need to participate in the webinar in an open office environment (so you don’t disrupt those around you).
