Here are five quick tips to remember when renewing your office or industrial lease:

  • Get your broker to provide you a market analysis of comparable rates and then negotiate your renewal rate … intelligently 
  • If you have a Gross Lease, request to move your Base Year/Expense Stop to current in order to avoid excessive pass throughs of expense overages 
  • Try to get a cap on controllable Landlord expenses of say 5% to 10% per year max 
  • Be sure you have a First Right of Refusal on any adjacent space to allow for expansion 
  • If your space needs any updating to meet code or just cosmetic upgrades, now is the time to negotiate that into the renewal at the Landlord’s expense
