Why is it important to accurately define the premises in the lease document?

It is essential to define the premises accurately in the lease document including:

  • Its physical configuration;
  • Its exact size in square metres and the method of measurement used to define the premises, e.g. is it to the inside or exterior walls? This can have a significant effect on the rental charged;
  • What carparks are available for use by the Tenant and what is the value on an annual basis attaching to these carparks.
  • The condition of the premises at the lease commencement date.
