Part 1 Regulated conditions for leases

1. Indemnity

The Lessee indemnifies and agrees to keep indemnified the Minister, and the State of Queensland and its Representatives (the “Indemnified parties”) against all liability, costs, loss and expenses including claims in negligence (including any claims, proceedings or demands brought by any third party, and any legal fees, costs and disbursements on a solicitor and client basis) (“Claim”) arising from or incurred in connection with:

(a)the granting of this Lease to the Lessee;
(b)the Lessee’s use and occupation of the land; or
(c)personal injury (including sickness and death) or property damage or loss in connection with the performance (or attempted or purported performance or non-performance) of the lease or a breach of the lease by the Lessee.

The Lessee hereby releases and discharges to the full extent permitted by law, the Indemnified parties from all actions, claims, proceedings or demands and in respect of any loss, death, injury illness or damage (whether personal or property, and whether special, direct, indirect or consequential, including consequential financial loss) arising out of the use and occupation of the Lease.

To the full extent permitted by law, the Minister, the State of Queensland and their Representatives will not be liable to the Lessee for any special, indirect or consequential damages, including consequential financial loss arising out of the use and occupation of the Lease.

2. Public Liability

The Lessee must effect a public liability insurance policy with an insurer authorised under the Insurance Act 1973 (Commonwealth) or, if not so authorised then only with the Minister’s approval, which can be given or withheld in the Minister’s sole discretion, naming the Lessee as the insured covering legal liability for any loss of, or damage to any property and for the injury (including death) to any person arising out of anything done or omitted on or about the land or any improvements thereon and against all claims, demands, proceedings, costs, charges and expenses whatsoever (including claims in negligence). Such policy must:

(a)be for an amount of not less than $20 Million and have no per event sublimit or such higher amounts as the Minister may reasonably require.
(b)be effected on a “claims occurring” basis; and
(c)be maintained at all times during the currency of the lease, and upon receipt of any notice of cancellation, the lessee must immediately effect another public insurance policy in accordance with the terms of the lease.

The Lessee must, as soon as practicable, inform the Minister, in writing, of the occurrence of any event that the Lessee considers is likely to give rise to a claim under the policy of insurance effected and must ensure that the Minister is kept fully informed of subsequent actions and developments concerning the claim.

The Lessee must renew such policy, at the Lessee’s expense, each year during the currency of this Lease.

This condition will be satisfied if the Lessee is the State of Queensland or a statutory authority eligible for cover under the Queensland Government Insurance Fund and is insured and continues to be insured by the Queensland Government Insurance Fund.

This condition will be satisfied if the lessee is the Commonwealth of Australia or a statutory authority eligible for cover under the Comcover Insurance Fund and is insured and continues to be insured by Comcover.

3. Access

The provision of access, further access or services to the land will not be the responsibility of the State.

4. Survey Costs

If the land needs to be surveyed or re-surveyed the Lessee must do this at its own cost under the Survey and Mapping Infrastructure Act 2003. This survey plan must be lodged in the land registry within the specified time.

5. Jurisdiction

The Lease is subject to the Land Act 1994 and all other relevant Queensland and Commonwealth legislation.

6. Compliance with Laws

The Lessee must comply with all lawful requirements of the:

(a)Local Government; and
(b)any department within the Queensland or Commonwealth governments (including the department administering the Land Act 1994), local authority or statutory instrumentality having jurisdiction over the land, or the development, use and occupation of the land, in regard to its use, occupation and development of the land.

Part 2 Additional regulated condition for rolling term leases

7. Extension

The lease is subject to the extensions of rolling term leases provision of the Land Act 1994 and the Minister must grant an extension of the term of a rolling term lease if the lessee makes an application in the approved form. The extension will be for the original term of the lease and may be given subject to condition changes.
