Office Leasing Guide

Office Leasing

Top Ten

  1. Beginning the negotiation of a renewal or new lease too late
  2. Lacking clearly defined business or real estate objectives
  3. Focusing exclusively on financial costs
  4. Failing to appoint a project leader as the internal single point of contact
  5. Making inaccurate estimations of the company’s space requirements
  6. Failing to leave enough time at the end of the lease to fulfill “make good” obligations
  7. Acting too slowly once a decision is made and consequently missing out on opportunities
  8. Agreeing to terms prior to obtaining a space planning perspective
  9. Failing to allow for expansion space
  10. Lacking the knowledge of future opportunities; often, the best deals are secured well in advance of space becoming available
