An office relocation require a team effort - and this guide outlines the expert help you will need to ensure a successful office move.
Putting together the right Office Relocation Project Team is critical for your office move to run smoothly and guarantee success. Engaging (as early in the process as possible) professional support is a crucial element to ensure that neither time nor money is wasted - and that your company’s operational and commercial interests are safeguarded throughout the entire office relocation process.
The facts are that most people rent office space only a few times during an entire business career. Conversely, Landlords lease office space for a living – time and time again. Furthermore, in most cases they will instruct a Commercial Property Agent to advise them, help them market the office property and get a tenant to occupy the office space on the most favourable terms for them. So, on the face of things, the landlord seems to have an unfair advantage! The only way to balance this is to engage the services of your own property agent that specialises in representing tenants.
The main role of your solicitor will be to ensure that the terms which you and your Property Agent have negotiated are reflected in the final lease. Importantly, they will negotiate the detail of the lease documentation to minimise your exposure to potential liabilities, and subsequently, to advise you on the implications of the detailed terms in the final documents to ensure you are aware of your ongoing responsibilities.
