The law is explained as it applies generally and as it applies in particular to retail leases. All lease precedents, retail, commercial, industrial, residential, rural, are provided as are agreements to lease, disclosure statements, licenses and a library of additional clauses and notices, all letters and all that is required for the quick production of a lease following receipt of instructions.

On renewal, a disclosure statement update should be done which, together with the original, constitutes the new disclosure.
If the disclosure statement discloses in sufficient detail the obligation to fit out, refit or provide fixtures, plant or equipment for the lessee to obtain an estimate of likely costs, and the lessee agrees to this by signing the disclosure statement, those costs become his financial responsibility: s 14. In that case, the lessee will own the fittings even though they may be affixed to the premises.
If the lease provides for the lessee to pay the lessor an amount towards preparation, stamping and registration of the lease – the ‘ preparatory costs’ - the lessee is not liable to pay until the lessor has provided him with a copy of the account, but only to the extent of:
