An authoritative and comprehensive analysis of the law in Australia relating to commercial leases.

This authoritative work is designed to be a comprehensive analysis of the law throughout Australia, relating to all aspects of commercial leases. Commercial leases are still primarily governed by the common law, even where leases are subject to retail or shop lease legislation, as the various states' legislation tends to supplement and rely upon the common law. Consequently, the majority of this book consists of an analysis of common law principles, however, the book also examines this legislation, in particular, the Commonwealth Trade Practices Act 1974 and corresponding state fair trading legislation as well as retail or shop lease legislation on a state by state basis. This third edition will be of interest to both counsel and practitioners as well as academics, students and those involved in commercial leasing.
