Relocating Within Your Monroe Office
In most commercial leases that you will see in the Monroe office market, many landlords will state that the tenant may be moved to accompany a larger tenant that is looking to lease in their office. No matter what size business you own, you should never allow this to be written in to the contract. Choosing your next office space for the upcoming years is always a crucial step for any business. There are several factors that allow the tenant to decide on that particular office including views, visibility, closeness of noise, potential foot traffic, air conditioning and other proximity issues just to name some of the main reasons that businesses are excited to sign the lease agreement.
On the other end of the spectrum though, the landlord usually has a reason to keep this provision in the document. Most of the times, relocating your business normally falls on the landlords feet to pay for all of the moving expenses. In theory, the landlord of your Monroe office should technically only think about using this provision in desperate times. Think of it this way, if you currently own 2,500 square feet of the floor and the other 22,500 square feet become available, a potential client may state that they will only rent the 25,000 or nothing. Without your company moving, this is lost income for the landlord and a terrible issue to come by.
The mechanics that could occur if this was to ever happen are fairly straight forward:
1). Every cost involved in the potential move are to fall at the feet of the Landlord. Lease improvements, IT infrastructure, special equipment relocation and replacement of marketing collateral are just a few that come to the top of the list when thinking about this move.
2). The new Monroe Office Space should be equal in size and overall quality. The business owner/ tenant should not see an increase in monthly rent either if the new space is larger in size or an upgrade in any way, shape or form.
The chances of a relocation of your business are not likely to happen, but in the chance that they do, having all of your ducks in a row are the best way to act on this possibility. During the relocation, the tenant will actually have a good deal of power in the negotiations. Having it stated in your lease that you will not move due to a new tenant coming in to the building can save you the hassle of dealing with anything at all. But on the chance that it does occur, you can have the upper hand to find a space that potential fits your growing company even more.
