Australia's retail tenancies (and some commercial and industrial) are governed by state and territory governments each of whom are responsible for their own tenancy legislation and regulation. However, commercial operations – particularly in retail – are not bound by geographic location.

Find out about Australia's retail tenancy legislation in our compendium

MinterEllison is pleased to present the Retail Tenancy Legislation Compendium – Eighth Edition. This invaluable resource is highly recognised throughout the property industry and provides a detailed summary of the legislation across all Australian states and territories as at 23 September 2020.


More often than not, retail operators conduct their business on a national scale, meaning an understanding of the provisions of retail tenancy legislation, both nationally and on a state-by-state basis, is essential.


This compendium has been produced with both the landlord and the tenant in mind and is presented in a format that enables a comparison of the legislation relating to each specific issue. For example, when addressing the review of rents nationally as well as across all states and territories.
