Provisions for Air conditioning , Server rooms , internet connectivity options, fire safety measures, and security services.
4. Legal Considerations: Before finalizing the office space, review the terms of the leave and license agreement. This includes checking current fees, parking charges, annual escalation, and the duration of the contract. It is also essential to ensure that the lessor has the legal rights to rent out the place.
5. Future Expansion Possibilities: If your company has plans for growth, explore whether there are opportunities for acquiring additional or larger spaces within the same complex . This will allow for seamless expansion in the future, saving time and resources.
6. Reputation and Credentials of the Lessor: Renting an office space is a long-term commitment, so it’s vital to evaluate the reputation and credentials of the lessors.
