Questions to Ask When Leasing Office Space

March 16, 2015

If your small business is going to be leasing office space, it’s important to know that you’re choosing the right one for your business (and it isn’t all just about price). Below are some questions you should ask before signing on the dotted line.

What Will the Building Hours Be?

You need an office space that you can access during the hours your employees will be working. In addition to standard 9 to 5 hours, many businesses need to have late-night access for big projects that have a deadline.

Who Is Handling Maintenance?

Is maintenance for the building being handled on-site by someone immediately available? Many businesses choose to contract out maintenance services to a separate company while others have management on-site. Although one approach isn’t necessarily better than the other, you should know this before you move in.

Does It Have Exclusive or Shared Facilities?

Does the property have facilities for conference rooms and break rooms to be shared or rented by tenants in the building? Does the suites you are interested in have areas for conference rooms and break rooms so that you can use to your discretion. This is an important point depending on the time you are going to be needing conference and break facilities for your business.
