“Michael negotiated very favourable commercial lease terms for us and true to his word, he improved on all the important parts of the deal. He managed to push down the asking rent, reduced the annual rent reviews, obtained more rent free and increased the amount the landlord was to give us in fit-out contribution, in fact 66% more!
I was very pleased with the final outcome and highly recommend Michael as an expert lease negotiator – he is a nice bloke and very good at what he does”.

“I engaged Michael to see if he could re-negotiate my rent as it was extremely high, however the catch was I still had several years remaining on my lease. After months of difficult negotiations, Michael somehow managed to convince my landlord to permanently reduce my rent by more $100,000 pa which over the course of the remainder of my lease term is going to save me in excess of $600,000. In addition Michael was also able to secure a one off rental rebate during the negotiations to help my cashflow until the deal was finalised. In total he saved me more than $640,000. He is a real professional, in fact he is a legend !

“Michael Cuda negotiated a new lease for a shopping centre pharmacy we purchased and also provided advice to help us negotiate new terms on our shopping strip pharmacy. We were amazed and extremely happy with the results achieved in both instances.”

“Michael managed to negotiate 20% rental reduction with an added reduction with the annual increases. He had the contacts to identify opportunities which we would otherwise would not have had, and efficiently and effectively dealt with our requests and queries. He took phone calls all hours to ensure we were fully informed throughout the process. Michael didn’t disappear after commercial terms were decided and followed through until lease document was received and signed.
Even after the proposal was signed he helped set up meetings with marketing managers to ensure we received maximum benefit of our promotions contribution.
Michael is passionate and dedicated and has an in depth understanding of the motivations of the landlords. Having a professional guide you through the lease negotiations is an essential investment when considering this often largest fixed cost of your business.”

“I engaged Michael Cuda to negotiate new lease terms with my landlord in early 2013. My landlord was particularly difficult to deal with, however Michael was focused, tenacious and never gave up – he kept me up to date with developments all through the process and worked tirelessly to achieve the best result for me. I was very pleased with the end result, in fact I am ecstatic ! Michael negotiated a new lease with a 30% reduction in rent, which equated to an over $40,000pa increase to my bottom line. I highly recommend Michael to anyone looking for a professional lease negotiator.”
