Retail shop lease disputes

Retail shop lease disputes

Disputes can arise from a disagreement between a tenant and landlord about a retail shop lease.

These disputes are resolved through a two-step process which involves:

  • mediation and
  • if the dispute is not resolved at mediation, a hearing by QCAT.

To assist with your matter you may request a search of register of proceedings (list of cases before QCAT) for retail shop lease matters. To request a search of the QCAT register of proceedings, you must provide a request in writing which includes the name of at least one party to the proceeding.

You can submit a request in writing via:

  • email: searches@qcat.qld.gov.au
  • post: QCAT, GPO Box 1639, Brisbane, QLD 4001
  • fax: 07 3221 9156
  • in person: QCAT, Level 9, BOQ Centre, 259 Queen Street, Brisbane

You can ask for the results of the search to be delivered in writing (via fax, email or post) or at the counter if you make a request in person.
