In 2008-2009 Paddington area Leasing Issues Hit the News
with the closure of treasured local stores due to rent hikes forcing
popular businesses to close down whilst in some cases leaving these

BIWCC called Don Gilbert to address a community meeting of concerned
local store owners and assist with advice to the stores and businessess
facing closure and issues with their rising rents. With the assistance of

'Leases, Leasing, Rents & Rental Disputes'
Don Gilbert, Australian Lease & Property Consultants
If one does not own one's premises, your lease is your business.
Landlords and tenants both need leases; landlords to give their investments
'value' and tenants to operate their business from.
Properly structured leases, with built in flexibility and tenants paying 'current
market rent' adds value to a lease, the property and the business, and
exactly the opposite with no or limited tenure and if rents are well above or
below current market rent. Where does your business fit in ?
Don Gilbert has compiled his presentation from presentations that he has
given at international valuation congresses.
