Questions to Ask Before Leasing: 5/10
Over the next few weeks, we will be adding to our series of helpful tips for businesses starting to look into leasing. This post is the fifth of 10 on the essential questions you should ask before signing an office lease.
This Week’s Question: Where is the Property Management located?
You start your lease with a fresh office, new paint, new carpet, and perfectly functioning utilities. But what happens when something breaks? It’s up to your property manger to take care of your issues.
The Property Management company, or division, manages and takes care of the building and building tenants. They also deal with any issues that may arise during your lease such as power outages, malfunctioning elevators, security issues, HVAC issues, and additional work to your suite.
While it may seem like common sense, it is very important to have a management team that responds to your concerns and issues in a timely and personal manner. There is nothing worse than only being able to speak with an answering machine or send an e-mail when you have an issue that requires speaking directly with a person or immediate attention.

A property management team that is close is always better. By having a dedicated group of individuals committed to meeting your every need, you can guarantee you will have a positive office experience. Always include your property management team’s reputation in your leasing experience.
