Article 4.3 of a standard agreement on the lease stipulates that the terms of a standard tenancy deed apply even if a tenancy deed has not been signed. It is a good idea to sign a lease and an agreement. If the parties sign a tenancy deed, there should be no ambiguity as to how the lease works in daily life. Commercial real estate agents often negotiate all the terms of the agreement between the parties, write the document and have copies signed and provided to lawyers to establish the formal lease.

Thus, after the Christchurch earthquakes, several new provisions were added to the standard lease form to deal with what will happen to the lease if the building is damaged or inaccessible.
