Supporting retailers through negotiations with landlords

Many retailer across Australia are not aware that they can engage a retail leasing and property specialist to act on their behalf. Our leasing and property partners Lpc Cresa are one of Australia’s leading tenant-only advisory services businesses. That means, they work exclusively for you the tenant. Their advice is completely independent and biased to benefit you – rather than the landlord.

Drawing on their extensive experience in retail management and the property industry, Lpc Cresa can save you time, money and stress and ensure you:
• Never enter into a bad lease
• Never miss a critical date
• Never pay too much rent
• Never miss an opportunity to reduce rental costs.
