If you are a veterinarian who is planning to relocate your clinic, you will have to eventually make your way through a lease negotiation with your prospective new landlord.
Research and a solid office lease review and negotiation strategy are critical to relocating your veterinary practice. It’s recommended to bring in a leasing professional to review your current and proposed lease to ensure you’re prepared for the unexpected.
Important Questions to Consider Before Relocating Your Veterinary Practice
How much time do you still have in your current space to avoid any “downtime” or “dark-time” while your new veterinary practice is being built?
Who is guaranteeing the lease? You, or your incorporated entity?
Will the landlord offer you a tenant improvement allowance to help with build-out costs?
Is the new lease set up to allow you to bring in associates and grow the clinic?
Can the landlord deny your request to sell the clinic and retire down the line?
Can the landlord relocate your clinic throughout your tenancy? If so, who pays for the move, you or the landlord?
Can the landlord terminate your lease, and kick you out of the building should you default on terms in the new lease?
To guarantee a smooth and safe relocation, there are many important items to consider within your current and new office lease that must be reviewed and addressed prior to relocating your practice.
