Commercial rent and lease disputes

FairWay provides an independent arbitration and mediation service to resolve commercial rent and lease disputes. 

If a business and their landlord cannot agree on rent for a commercial premise or change to an existing lease, arbitration and mediation are quick and cost-effective dispute resolution methods to resolve the disputes. Most commercial lease agreements have dispute resolution clauses which mandate mediation and/or arbitration so that litigation is avoided. It’s worthwhile to check your lease to see whether dispute resolution clauses are included. FairWay can provide mediation or arbitration that complies with these clauses.  

Here are some of the types of things that can be mediated or arbitrated:

  • Rent relief
  • Rent reductions
  • Lease changes.

Why mediate?

A mediator can assist you to navigate the dispute and reach an agreement.
