When it comes time to sign a lease on new office space, you’ve undoubtedly put considerable thought and countless hours into finding the perfect space. You have every reason to be excited about signing the lease and getting the show on the road. However, in your excitement, it’s vitally important to be certain that you really haven’t missed anything. That means you’ll need to put forth just a bit more effort in focusing on the fine print. After all, with all the time you’ve invested in your company, the last thing you need is to find some loophole that may wind up being a financial pitfall. In our February program, Star Hughes-Gorup from Hughes-Marino, will review in detail five items that warrant your attention before you sign that dotted line such as :

  • Understanding/Maximizing Your Tenant Improvement Allowance
  • Operating Expenses and Your Share of It
  • Taking Advantage of Early Access / Hold Over Periods
  • Including and Expansion Clause to Cover Company Growth
  • Parking Spaces and Contract Language to be aware of
