Negotiating a Commercial Lease


Your company has customers and needs room to grow – perhaps to accelerate production or to so there is a more professional place to meet with customers than the local coffee shop.

Entering into a lease for physical space may be one of the larger financial commitments the start-up will make, and it can either support growth or threaten financial survival.  Access to adequate space, suitably located, zoned and equipped, fitting within budget, can be a challenge.

Should the startup lease or sublease, or even buy?  Is a shared office arrangement suitable? Or can you get by as a virtual company with everyone working from home? If you lease, should you retain a broker? Do you err on more or less space? Must the founders sign personal guarantees?
