HAVE THE RIGHT MINDSET…
Whether you are about to start a new business and enter into a new lease for the first time or you are an existing retailer looking to renegotiate a further term, you must always bear in mind one important reality, the landlord (lessor) is in business to make money, the same as you are. Any dealings between the lessor and retailer (lessee) should always be commercial and at arm’s length. There must be recognition by both parties that all dealings should be professional at all times – often this is easier said than done, particularly when renegotiating a lease for an existing premise.
