A landlord should provide a copy of the Retail Tenant's Guide to a prospective tenant, along with the proposed lease, as soon as negotiations commence.
The landlord should have the proposed lease and Retail Tenant's Guide in their possession before they offer a lease, invite an offer for lease, or advertise the property for lease.

The statement provides information to the tenant about the property and outgoings they agree to pay. For shops in shopping centres it gives details of the centre. The Lessee's disclosure statement is a statement from the tenant back to the landlord and is the place to note any statements made by the landlord or agent the tenant counts on when entering the lease. These documents must be given to the tenant at least seven days before the lease begins.
The assignor's disclosure statement will be useful when selling your business.
