Recorded Webinar: Drafting and Negotiating Agreements for Lease (Professional Skills)


27th February 2019

Duration:  1 hour


An agreement for lease is an agreement to grant a lease in the future without actually granting a right of possession to the proposed lessee. While they commonplace in commercial leases, they come with some complex challenges. This session refreshes practitioners on agreements to lease, and includes:

  • When is it appropriate to use an agreement for lease?
  • The contents of the agreement to lease and how they differ from the lease
  • Timing: commencing the fitout before the lease commences
  • When does the ‘rent-free’ period commence?
  • Managing joint work – some fitout done by the landlord and some by the tenant
  • Who is the principal contractor?
  • Managing, allocating and insuring risk in the construction phase
  • Security, ownership and PPSA issues of the fitout
