Define Your Space Needs

  • General Business Information

    Property owners will often request to see your company’s financials to ensure you will be able to pay for your rent as well as other business operating expenses.
  • Space Needs

  • Check all that apply
  • What type of business do you run and how do you intend to use your space? If possible, break out uses by % of space (e.g. office, warehouse/storage, production space, retail)
    In addition to your monthly rent or mortgage, also consider your relocation costs – moving, furniture, fixtures and tenant improvements. Permit fees may also be required to open your business. In most cases, landlords will require a security deposit. Understand all operating costs you will incur – water, gas, electricity, phone/internet, and cleaning/maintenance costs.
