Whether you’re a tenant in an office, retail, or industrial space you run the risk of having an undesirable neighbor. Bad tenants are loud, rude, inconsiderate, sometimes dangerous, and always bad for business. Knowing the landlord and property management’s history is a crucial factor in determining how peaceful and productive your office space will be in the months and years ahead. Responsive management will enforce lease restrictions on noise, foot traffic, and safety before it becomes debilitating to your business.
Some tenants believe strongly in getting testimonials from other tenants before signing a lease. This is always a good idea, but only gives you a partial picture of how the landlord deals with problem tenants within their portfolio. The only way to accurately gauge what life will be like at a building is to turn back the clock and take a look at how the landlord manages their property. Our access to landlord history gives a much more accurate means of measuring how well office, retail, and industrial spaces are managed before you sign the lease. Landlords allowing competitors to office in the same office building can be just as detrimental to your business. Don’t wait until you have a bad neighbor. Make sure you know what you’re getting into before a commitment is made to an office, retail, or industrial space.
