Negotiate Leases

Don't let your lease be handbrake on your business

Based in Auckland helping businesses in New Zealand and Australia negotiate leases (and subleases)

A lease can be one of your most significant and longest fixed costs, typically 3-15 years.

A lease is simple to sign but, without careful consideration, the consequences can be plentiful and long-lasting.

Leasing premises isn’t just about finding a place to run your business; it is a strategic investment in your future.

Negotiating the right lease terms can see your business take off… the wrong terms can be a handbrake. Or worse, a car-crash in very slow motion.

As a tenant, you need to negotiate lease terms, to ensure your profitability, operational efficiency, and overall success. Afterall, your leasing costs are your second biggest expense after staff.

Here are some key reasons why it is essential for tenants to negotiate lease terms:

  1. Cost Management: The terms of your lease directly affect your business’s operating costs.
  2. Negotiating Incentives: Landlords may offer incentives to attract tenants, don’t leave money on the table.
  3. Flexibility and Growth: Every business evolves over time, and your space requirements may change as well.
  4. Mitigating Risk: A poorly negotiated lease may expose your business to unnecessary risks.
  5. Protecting Your Interests: Ultimately, lease negotiations are about protecting your business’s interests.
  6. Competitive Advantage: Property expertise and negotiating skills can give you an edge over other tenants and competitors.

“Marcus is a highly professional property specialist. He is easy to work with, outcome focused, and pragmatic.

We engaged Marcus from Proactive Property Group to urgently source our Auckland distribution centre and negotiate lease terms.

Working in a challenging environment that included navigating COVID19 restrictions and a significant shortage of available properties Marcus secured premises and negotiated a lease on excellent commercial terms within 8 weeks.

I was impressed with Marcus’s ability not only to deliver on our core requirements, but also to use his experience in helping us navigate a number of internal discussions.

With his help we arrived at the best possible immediate solution, and developed an objective view on our how to address our future requirements.

I would recommend Marcus without reservation.”
