Beyond the terms of the lease, there are a number of important questions to ask before choosing office space.
Business owners should ask themselves:
— How long do I plan to stay?
— How can I get out of the lease?
Business owners should ask their brokers:
— What kind of experience do you have?
— Are my space needs too big or too small for you?
— Do you have any certifications?
Business owners should ask their landlords:
— What is the tenant mix in your building?
— Will there be onsite management?
— What kind of build-outs or amenities will you provide?
— What are the terms of the lease?
— Is there an option to sublease?
