Residential and Commercial Leases
Platinum Lawyers can provide assistance with retail and commercial leases in a number of capacities. It is important to seek legal advice from an experienced commercial lawyer before entering a lease, or before putting a lease before lessee. We can advise as to whether the lease falls under the Retail Shop Leases Act 1994 (Qld) and ensure that all relevant requirements are complied with.
In Queensland, there is no such thing as a standard Commercial Lease or Standard Retail Shop Lease. They are drafted by the solicitors for the landlord. Some areas of advice our solicitors can assist in are:
- The term of the lease
- The security over the lease
- Letter of offer/agreement to lease
- Rent review
- Breach of contract
- Options on leases
- Reviewing leases for landlords and tenants

Our Principle, Mr McClelland at Platinum Lawyers has consulted in over 300 separate cases against major banks and other financial institutions such as credit unions, mortgage providers and private equity companies.
We have been able to achieve commercial results for the banking and finance market victims, despite the difficulties and obstacles.
In one matter that concluded in September 2017, Mr McClelland saved the client over $10,000,000.
As a former farmer and knowing the variables that determine profitability in the farming space, Mr. McClelland is able to comprehend and appreciate the difficulties Australian Farmers have been put under, post GFC. The vulnerable status from the decisions of the banking boards decisions whose aim is to drive profits for the shareholders regardless of how that revenue is obtained, fuels Mr. McClelland’s ever lasting devotion to help people subjected to injustice.
Mr McClelland has extensive experience in defending farmers by the use of the Farm Debt Mediation Act 2017 (Qld).
Mr McClelland has been lobbying for a damages clause to be inserted into the Act for those occasions that the financier does not apply the remedies of the relevant FDMA in that State.
Further, Mr McClelland has been advocating for a National Farm Debt Mediation Act by the Commonwealth Government to protect all primary producers from the greed of financiers.
