STARTING A CLINIC, AND THE DENTAL OFFICE LEASE: WHAT TO KNOW

The Offer to Lease, or Letter of Intent

This is the short form of your dental office lease that mainly addresses economic terms such as rental rates, start date, length of term, options to renew, tenant improvement allowances, deposits, etc. This is a very important step for any dentist building a dental office, that requires extensive research and understanding to help negotiate fair terms. Our dental office leasing experts are here to help you through this critical step. Remember, the ultimate goal for landlords and dental practice brokers is to try and get you to agree to the highest rent possible.

Research and a solid dental lease negotiation strategy are critical here, as this will determine how much money you will spend in rent over the next 10 years, perhaps longer; you don’t want to make a mistake.

Dental Office Lease Review for Practice Startups

The next step in the process of opening a dental clinic is reviewing, negotiating, and understanding the dental office lease agreement. The lease is typically a much longer document, always written in the landlord’s favor. This is their tool to make as much money as they can from you, for as long as possible. Your lease is filled with terms and clauses that determine how well your practice will be protected over the coming years.

Some important questions to ask yourself are:

  • Who is guaranteeing the lease?

  • Is the lease set up to bring in associates or eventually sell your dental practice?

  • Does the landlord have the right to relocate your practice?

  • Can the landlord terminate your lease, and kick you out of the building?
