Property Law Conference

Feb 2014 |

Senior Associate Karen Brown is presenting on Agreement for Lease - Binding on and Effective for Both Parties? at the upcoming Queensland Property Law Conference taking place on Thursday 20 and Friday 21 February at the Stamford Plaza Hotel.

Agreements for lease like any "agreements to agree" may be non-binding or defective.  Like any contractual arrangement, they require careful drafting to ensure they are binding.  Understanding the principles to establish binding agreements for lease is the subject of this session which includes:

  • Distinguishing a lease from an agreement to lease
  • When should agreements to lease be used?
  • Contents of agreement to lease - including handover provisions and variations
  • Dealing with extensions of time requirements where construction has been delayed
  • Including clause for damages in the event of delay - how should this be done?
  • What is required for achievement of "practical completion"?
  • What happens when premises are complete and ready to occupy?
  • Obtaining necessary statutory consents
  • Case law update
