Office Leasing Guide
Top 10 Tenant Mistakes

Common mistakes made by tenants

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