Product Description

Unless you operate a business out of your home, or own the building from which your shingle dangles, you need to lease commercial space. For the typical owner, this process can be daunting--and cluttered with costly, potential pitfalls.

With Negotiating the Best Lease for Your Business, you can proceed with confidence. This practical handbook explains how to analyze space needs and then go about finding the ideal location at the best price. Learn how to:

Determine the real cost of renting;
Negotiate with an experienced landlord;
Read the small print;
Allocate the responsibility -- and cost -- of fixing up the space;
End a lease early;
Share the space with a subtenant;
Problem solve without hiring a lawyer.

Comprehensive and, as always, written in plain English, Leasing Space for Your Small Business is essential for entrepreneurs on the hunt for a fair and workable lease.

Table of Contents includes:
Finding and Evaluating Space and Developing a Negotiation Strategy;
What Kind of Space Do You Need?;
Looking for Space and Using Brokers;
Evaluating the Space and the Landlord;
Understanding the True Size and Cost of the Rental;
Setting the Stage to Negotiate;
Your Negotiation Strategy;
Lease Basics;
The Length of Your Lease;
Security Deposits;
Improvements and Alterations;

Option to Renew or Sublet and Other Flexibility Clause;
Insurance Clauses;
Breaking the Lease, Disputes and Attorney Fees;
Foreclosures, Condemnations, Guarantors and Other Clauses.
