Commercial Leases in Northern Territory

Commercial leases relating to retail shops and some other business premises in the Northern Territory are subject to the rules in the Business Tenancies (Fair Dealings) Act (NT) (BTFD Act) and the Business Tenancies (Fair Dealings) Regulations (NT). These laws are designed to give the tenant under a retail shop lease some additional protections that do not exist under common law, which generally governs other kinds of commercial leases. If there is a clause in a retail shop lease that is inconsistent with these laws, it is overridden. 

Commercial leases relating to retail shops in the Northern Territory are subject to the rules in the Business Tenancies (Fair Dealings) Act.
