Letter of Offer or Agreement to Lease

The letter of offer or agreement to lease is crucial in outlining the main terms and conditions that will be included in the lease or license agreement between the parties.

If you engage Armstrong Lawyers early on in the process, you will receive the benefit of a carefully considered and prepared letter of offer or agreement to lease for the prospective tenant.

  • disclosure and other obligations under the relevant rules and legislation (such as the Retail Leases Act 2003 and the Retail Leases Regulations 2003); and
  • general matters including practical guidance throughout the process.
