Retail Tenancy Lease Kit SA

This Retail Tenancy Lease Kit is suitable for most retail leases in South Australia that aren’t located in a large shopping centre.

If your tenant is selling or hiring goods or services directly to the public from your premises, then it is likely that your lease will be a retail shop lease, and this Kit will be the right choice for you. If your premises are used as a factory, warehouse, office or storage site, see our Commercial Lease Page for SA.

In South Australia, retail shop leases are governed by the Retail and Commercial Leases Act 1995. The Act contains rights and obligations of both the tenant and the landlord on retail tenancy issues such as: the minimum term and options to renew the lease, security deposit, rent and rent increases, assignment and subletting and termination of the lease.

This lease kit complies with the Retail and Commercial Leases Act. It comes with a Guide to help you understand your rights and obligations under the Act and complete your lease documentation with ease.

 Minimum 5-year lease term

In SA, retail shop tenants automatically have a minimum five-year lease term (this is calculated to include any options to renew).

If your lease is for a short term of less than five years, the tenant will need to obtain a certificate waiving the tenant’s right to the minimum five year lease period. This is explained further in the Retail Lease Kit.

Landlord must give a disclosure statement
The landlord must provide the tenant with a disclosure statement and an estimate of the costs associated with the lease before the lease is entered into.

The tenant has the right to terminate the lease within the first six months if the disclosure statement is not provided to the tenant or it contained wrong or misleading information.
This Kit contains the Disclosure Statement required for South Australian retail leases.
