In relation to capital expenditure to "make good"GIO House and Allara House:

(2) Why do these buildings have to be made good;

(3) What works are planned as part of this $626,000 project;

(5) Who owns these buildings;

(6) What will the work add to the market value of these buildings;

Mr Wood: The answers to the member's questions are as follows:

(1) The requirement to make good is a standard commercial lease requirement whereby at the end of a lease, the lessee is required to return the premises to the condition as existed at the commencement of the lease. It usually refers to the removal of all fixtures and fittings and repair of any damage caused by such removal, fair wear and tear excepted.

(2) Making good is a requirement of the agreement between the Lessor and the Lessee. This is a common practice for leased premises under a commercial lease.
