Landlords – Back to Basics

By Les Buchbinder, Director, with the assistance of Giuseppe Graneri, Associate at Bowen Buchbinder Vilensky Lawyers 

2 February 2016

The starting point for all Landlords should be ensuring that they have an appropriate and well drafted lease for their commercial premise. It is a crucial step for Landlords as a poor lease or a bad leasing decision can be a costly mistake. The lease is central to the goodwill, value and future sale of a business.  A well drafted lease can avoid or assist the Landlord in resolving disputes that they may have in the future with tenants.

In Western Australia, the Commercial Tenancy (Retail Shops) Agreements Act 1985 regulates many retail shop leases. Landlords should understand their rights and obligations in relation to the lease and what procedures to follow in the event of any disputes.

My Will is My Business – the Essential Connection

By Laura Di Cristofaro, Solicitor at Bowen Buchbinder Vilensky Lawyers

20 January 2016

We are constantly reminded of the importance of having a Will. The reality is, no adult is too young to make a Will and we must all confront our reluctance to plan for our succession.  Whilst the majority of us want to ensure that we provide security to our loved ones and our own legacy, many of us put executing a Will in our bucket list and never get around to actually doing anything about it.

Served With a Violence Restraining Order (“VRO”)? – Now What?

 
18 December 2015

Often over the past few years a client will come to see me because they have been served with an interim violence restraining order.

The client is now prevented from returning to the home (once) shared with their partner, cannot return to the family business, and cannot spend time or communicate with the children.

The situation is usually made worse because their communications are now limited, or even prevented altogether, by operation of the orders.

What You Should Do First

Read the interim order that has been served on you.  Then read it a second and third time.  The orders are in plain language and are generally easy to follow.

Despite what you may think, for the most part, there are reasons that the Order was granted.
