Is the company tenant doing a disservice to the average renting household?

The articles linked below seem to imply that it’s easy for tenants to break leases without liability by falsely arguing the lessor is in breach of the agreement. That’s certainly not the experience of the average tenant.  If there is any truth in these claims, perhaps big companies are more able to risk paying out large sums of money in compensation if they can’t prove their case whereas the average tenant is not.

If a party to a dispute believes the claims of the other side are unfounded, the current system allows arbitration at the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal (QCAT) where both parties get to make their case
