Checklist: Renting a Business Location

Your type of business will dictate many of your decision-making factors. For example, a retail business that is dependent on walk-in traffic means that you must have a location where there are many people who have an interest in your product or service.

The downloadable checklist also addresses some of the most common issues that arise when a lease is being negotiated. Understanding all the lease terms can make the negotiation process easier for both you and the landlord. Depending on your level of comfort, you may want to have a qualified attorney help you work through the leasing process.

This checklist is not all-inclusive. You may want to use checklists found in many reference books or on the Internet to make sure all of your issues are covered. Your lease is important. So is the relationship with the landlord. A good working relationship will make the call about the leaking roof easier to make, and a good relationship may get the air conditioner repaired just a little sooner.
