Commercial Leases

Where you are a tenant or a landlord, there is much to consider before entering into a legally binding contract for a commercial lease. One of the best ways to avoid issues is to seek legal advice from our specialist property lawyers. Brisbane has one of the largest pools of commercial leasing in Queensland, but no matter where in the State your property of interest is situated, a Creagh Weightman Lawyers expert can assist.

Our property solicitors in Brisbane see most issues arising from parties being unaware of their rights and responsibilities before signing a commercial property lease. At times the terms of a lease can be ambiguous.

To avoid making a costly mistake, make sure that before making a commitment or signing any commercial leasing documentation, involve a Creagh Weightman property lawyer in Brisbane, who can provide guidance in the preparation and review of any documentation.

For those considering leasing out a retail commercial, our property legal specialist will let you know if there are additional considerations under retail lease legislation.  If you are looking to lease retail premises, then our property solicitor in Brisbane will ensure that your rights are fully explained and protected.


Creagh Weightman Lawyers has more than two decades of experience as trusted experts in property law in Brisbane, and has a deep understanding of caveat legislation in Queensland.

Caveats are lodged when two parties are in dispute over property matters, with the caveat process preserving the status quo of the property title to allow time for the parties to resolve the dispute. However, caveats are a complex area of law.

Anyone lodging a caveat without proving a lawful reason may be liable to pay compensation to the other party who suffered loss or damage from the action. It’s important to seek advice from one of our Brisbane-based property law specialists before considering this cause of action. 

To find out more about caveats, speak with an experienced property lawyer in Brisbane CBD. Consultations can be arranged when you fill out our contact form or phone 07 3211 7766.

Building Contracts

Whether it’s your first construction project or one of many, it is important that all building contracts must be reviewed by one of Creagh Weightman Lawyers’ specialist property solicitors. Their expert legal advice will recommend changes to the contract before it is signed to relieve the stress of future disputes, unexpected financial costs and misunderstandings.  The valuable information received will provide advice on how to handle specific situations that commonly arise, along with the confidence that you are in a robust legal position.
