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.

Client testimonials

I’ve been a client of Ebejer & Associates since 2007, and have used them for all of my legal needs. Marlene and her team are responsive, informative and immensely helpful and supportive. I’ve always felt that my interests have been 100% supported, and there have certainly been occasions where the team has gone above and beyond for me. I cannot recommend Ebejer & Associates highly enough.
