Negotiating with your landlord is rarely done on a level playing field, but a free webinar conducted by the ARA could help.
Keynote speaker Phil Chapman, founder of Lease 1, ‘Australia’s leading retail lease consultancy firm’ will explain how retailers can get back some power at the lease negotiating table and secure manageable rents, particularly during times of poor retail trade.
Subjects covered include:
– How to negotiate leases effectively (without enlisting the services of Mick Gatto);
– The keys to negotiating with leasers in relation to new sites;
– Rental reviews and renewal of leases;
– Advice on what to do to manage excessive rents when retail sales aren’t growing;
– Tips on how to find out what rent you should be paying.
Date is Wednesday, August 20, from 10:00 – 11:00am.
