Getting value-for-money in leasing

Leasing premises can be a complex process for government agencies, with potential for a range of hidden costs to affect value-for-money considerations.

AGS's leasing experts say that to ensure a fully-considered assessment is made and to minimise unexpected risk, agencies need to look behind the 'basic offer' and carefully consider the total implications of the terms of the lease document.

A new AGS fact sheet Hidden costs in leasing, outlines key considerations to be made. For more information about hidden costs and leasing issues, please contact an AGS lawyer listed on the factsheet.

The AGS Factsheet series covers a wide range of legal issues and topics pertinent to government agencies.
