7. Tenant improvement allowance is usually applied to square feet. This allowance can either be applied to rentable square feet or the usable square feet of the premises. Unless you are in a single tenant building, the rentable square feet is always larger—about 10-15% larger—so the dollar amount for rentable square footage would be higher. Be sure that you know which measurement the landlord is using for the allowance.
8. Seek professional advice. Remember that you only have to go through the rental process a few times in your corporate career, whereas landlords deal in office rental all the time. Try to even the playing field by finding a good tenant representative for any relocations, subleases, or renewals. These individuals will represent you, and usually the landlord will pay for their services. Taking advantage of this opportunity means saving money and frustration in the long run.
Consult with professionals, do your research, and make sure you begin the office rental process fully prepared!
