Commercial & Residential Leases

Residential Leases

We can assist landlords to draft residential leases to ensure the lease complies with the Residential Tenancies Act, particularly in circumstances where you do not want to use a Real Estate Agent.

Where there is a dispute between a tenant and landlord, we represent the landlord or tenant at VCAT (Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal). We can either provide you with advice and prepare you for the VCAT hearing or we can represent you at a VCAT hearing.

Marlene was recommended to me by a friend and thank God she did. Couldn’t have chosen a better person for the job. At a time when I felt my life was spiraling out of control, Marlene’s knowledge, dedication and positive attitude turned one of the worst experiences in my life into a bright future for myself and children with better than expected results. Her professional, friendly manner made dealing with such a deeply emotional issue just that little bit easy, and I would often walk out of her office with a smile. I cannot thank her enough. I would have no hesitation in highly recommending Marlene Ebejer to represent you as your legal representative.
