Legal and Leasing Information

When approaching SCM from a legal perspective, it is important to understand that

  1. All SCM will have legal concerns regarding empty spaces projects; and
  2. All SCM will have a way they typically lease out their premises, and many will be reluctant to change this

A goal should therefore be to understand and be able to communicate to the SCM:

  1. What works from a legal perspective for empty spaces; and
  2. Why this method is of benefit to the landlord and/or SCM as well as the tenant.

It is also important to understand that the information provided here is relevant only to New South Wales, is of a general nature, and does not constitute nor should be relied on as legal advice. If you have specific questions it is important to speak to a qualified lawyer. The Arts Law Centre of Australia may also be able to assist in this.
