    I have purchased a commercial property said to be annual CPI (all groups SA)  reviewed

    but the Lease has the first 3 yrs JULY 2016-2019 as a no review/holiday  period

    First Review 1 July 2019, should have been  actioned by Vendor’s Management Agent  but was not,despite promise of AGENT to have this done before Settlement

    Do I use CPI from I/7/16 to 1/7/19  i.e 3 yrs of CPI

    or am I to use only the 18/19 yr

    Can you advise

    Depends on the wording in the lease.

    After reading the rent review clause,  go to and get the CPI table download. This is an Excel file.

    Use the all groups Adelaide


    June 2019 ÷ June 2016 × current rent.

    113.7 / 107.5 = 1.0576744186 x rent


    You will also need to do a back rent calculation for the period after the rent review to current (even if this is prior to your ownership, it is in arrears).
