Lease negotiation is part art, part science.
The most important thing is knowing what your interests are as the tenant, and how to protect them.
Businesses looking for a retail, office or warehouse lease are generally after lower rents, healthy incentives and good lease terms.
Consider getting advice when you’re dealing with commercial landlords and their lawyers. And make sure your advisor represent tenants-only.
When it comes to negotiating – once you’ve shortlisted the sites you want, it’s crucial to create competitive tension.
The way you communicate with agents, landlords and other stakeholders is key to creating leverage and optimising your bargaining position.
Then it’s about knowing how far to push negotiations while protecting your interests as the prospective occupier.
Attention to detail is vital: make sure you have a comprehensive knowledge of property contracts and perform due diligence to ensure legal compliance.
Next step is closing the deal. This involves liaising with the landlord’s lawyers in order to finalise documentation, sign and settle.

How do you find the ideal property for your business requirements?
For example, the ideal retail location, or the warehouse you need in order to expand your distribution operations. From establishing lease requirements to issuing market briefs, assessing property submissions from agents and conducting inspections, there are crucial steps businesses in Australia should follow in order to run an effective search process to find a site fast.
1. Establish your lease requirements
Define what your business need from a property in terms of location, zoning, usage, features, rent and lease term.
2. Develop a real estate brief
A good brief expedites the search process and makes sure you receive property submissions that are tailored to your requirements.
3. Issue the brief to market
Being able to leverage beneficial, long-term relationships with agents, access lease property data and off-market opportunities is a massive advantage.
4. Compile a long-list
Compile a longer list of suitable properties, including off-market opportunities.
5. Decide the short-list
Review and select three to five of the most suitable properties.
6. Conduct inspections
Go out to sites and make inspections of short-listed properties.
7. Create competitive tension
Manage relationships with property stakeholders including agents and landlords to optimise your negotiating position.
8. Enter into lease negotiations for the properties you want

We have 50 years’ experience finding the best retail, office and warehouse sites for business tenants.
Businesses, especially eCommerce brands, need warehouses to organise their distribution, fulfilment and other logistics. So – how do you go about leasing a warehouse for your business?
E-commerce is booming – from meal kit services and online groceries to fashion and apparell brands, wine and liquor delivery, electronic goods retailers, homeware & furniture, and more – and smart founders, owners and senior executives are making sure they find the warehouse lease arrangements that support their bottom line.
It’s not all about the biggest, newest sheds.
Negotiate a rent reduction on an existing lease, rationalise your warehouse footprint to maximise efficiency, or relocate a strategic inner-city, suburban or regional site with better terms.
Tenant Leasing Group is looking to work with new and established e-Commerce businesses who want to take advantage of the incentives and site opportunities on offer.
We’re here to help businesses minimise warehousing costs and improve supply chain efficiency.
Our services are priced on a case-by-case basis.
Among other things, we can help you find a site, negotiate a lease, renew an existing lease, manage your lease expiry, or review your entire property strategy. But, we only charge for the specific tasks we undertake on your behalf. You don’t get charged for what you don’t use.
Dodgy leases can be legally binding, so it’s well worth hiring a professional tenant representative or property adviser (in the case of Tenant Leasing Group, we are both) to make sure you know what you’re getting into.
We don’t own or manage any properties on behalf of owners, investors, landlords or developers.
Our services are for tenants-only. We assist with retail, eCommerce, industrial & logistics and other commercial property requirements, including helping businesses find a site, negotiate a lease, renew an existing lease, and signing contractual agreements with their warehouse landlord or other lessor.
We find and negotiate retail, warehouse, industrial and other commercial property leases on behalf of businesses to save them time and money.
Remaining independent means we act only in accordance with client needs – not those of landlords, developers, or other parties. We have no conflict of interest – and this means we can strategically negotiate a lease that is most beneficial to the tenant.
