The Leasing Process

The Leasing Process - Finding Office Space

The leasing process begins by making sure you have selected the right agent... It is essential that you use an experienced agent to guide you through every step of the way. It is preferrable that your agent is impartial and ‘tenant-centric’, rather than the marketing agent for the landlord. We have nearly 25 years of experience in Singapore commercial leasing and only act for tenants.

Our service saves you time, and is completely FREE with no obligations.

Finding Office Space

Define Requirements

Define Requirements

Size, budget and location are the most important criteria. This will determine the choice, quality, level of specification and facilities available to the tenant.

Timing of Possession

Tenants should be mindful that at least one to two months are required to order materials and furniture before taking possession, so it is important to set a realistic target date for possession, otherwise the unit will be standing idle during the rent-free fitting out period.

Building Selection

Building Selection

Usually the client will have 2 - 3 buildings in their final shortlist and this is the time to check with an interior designer that the size, layout and specification will suit their needs. Corporate Locations will be able to give the client a list of the most suitable designers according to the nature of the requirement.

The Negotiations

The Negotiations

Following the viewing we are confident that you will have seen the perfect office space for your business. If not, then we will get straight back to work as we will then know exactly what you are looking for. Lease negotiation with the landlord is the next stage, and we will guide you through this complex process.

Factors that influence negotiations include:

  • How long the space has been on the market
  • Length of lease
  • What the occupancy rate is for the building
  • Condition of the premises
  • Nature of Landlord – private or corporate
  • Evidence of recent deals - not just asking rates
  • Vacancy rate in the district
