Consider using a tenant rep for next space search
There are often hidden costs involved with a new lease. Any initial quote provided by a landlord covers rent per square foot. But it may not include additional costs, such as taxes, utilities, operating expenses, and the responsibility for mundane chores, such as light bulb replacements and daily maintenance. When you factor in these side charges, the cost differential can run into hundreds of dollars. A tenant rep can make sure you’re aware of all such charges.
Use your banker for more than money
Because of the vast number of available resources such as special city or government loan programs, technical assistance providers and specific contacts for various services, a business owner can’t know it all. Rely on your banker for this type of reference.
