Our renting information does not apply to commercial/retail leases. Our jurisdiction covers only residential leases.
If you rent a property mainly as your home, but also run a business there, our information may be relevant to you if the Residential Tenancies Act 1997 (the Act) applies. For example, if the retail premises also includes a residential premises which is not leased to the retail tenant, then the tenant in the residential part of the premises is covered by the Act.
