There is no doubt that businesses in Florida have quite a few different issues to address on a day-to-day basis, but sometimes the most complicated issues are related to commercial real estate. For some companies, that means finding the right location to “open up shop” and, as a result, negotiate a commercial lease. For others, it might be a real estate purchase and the efforts to determine if the area in question is right for the intended use. So, how might leasing and zoning issues impact your business?
When it comes to leases, the options can seem innumerable. It oftentimes isn’t as easy as just paying a flat rental rate. The length of the agreement can be up for negotiation, for example, as can many other terms. Not only that, but oftentimes leases of any kind are drafted in a way that they are heavily slanted in favor of the landlord. When you are negotiating a commercial lease, pay attention to the details.
Zoning issues can be even more complicated and time-consuming. In any given area there are local requirements and codes that your business must comply with in order to stay in the good graces of the local government entity. Your perfect spot may not be zoned for your needs, for example. If that is the case, you may need to apply for some changes.
