BIWCC Business Breakfast Seminar                                            Mar 2012
Pitfalls & Opportunities of Commercial Property:
Your Tenant IS Your Investment   Why ?
Australian Lease & Property Consultants    Don Gilbert
 * The status of the Retail Property Market, Why & How it is Dysfunctional
 * The negative impact on all stakeholders incl Landlords, Tenants, Franchise
    Industry, Financiers, etc
 * The imbalance in the negotiating position of Landlords & Tenants
 * What is required to "re-balance" the Market

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
commercial prime area sites vacant for some time. Vacant sites create
an eye-sore along a bustling retail street affecting surrounding shops

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
Cr Peter Matic Toowong Ward BIWCC gained funding from the
Lord Mayor Newman Community Funds to assist local businesses with
Leasing advice

BIWCC, Don Gilbert -Legal Leasing advice was offered to the local
stores since receiving the 2009 funding.  Brisbane Inner West Chamber
of Commerce had visited the local businesses regularly and offered the
advice and seminar events.  Some businesses spoke to Don Gilbert to
gain his expert opinion on their concerns and lease renewals.  Others
had gained information from Don's and the Legal Leasing advice papers on BIWCC website from September 2009

September 2010 ...
BIWCC is very grateful to Don Gilbert, Graham Isles and Bill McMillan
for their valuable time at 2 September 2010 eventS for our local area

BIWCC held a very successful NIGHT of 28 local business attendees
who gained much benefit from both Don and Graham.  One long-time
local business learnt that renegotiating their lease early could create
much more security & business goodwill for their work of over 10 years

BIWCC Commercial LEASES & RENTALS  FREE NIGHT       Sept 2010    

Brisbane West Senior Citizens Centre  132 Latrobe Tce Paddington

'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.

'Leases - Avoiding the Traps for the Unwary !' 
Graham Isles, McMillan Legal, Milton
  * Negotiations through to the signing of the Lease - it can be a rocky road
   for some!
  * Complexities in the Retail Shop Leases Act and recent legal decisions
     - How do they apply to you ?

Our Night was supported by two great BIWCC Members ...
