Top 10 most common industrial leasing mistakes made by tenants

Avoid these common blunders in your industrial leasing process

  • Putting yourself at a disadvantage by beginning renewal or new lease negotiations too late.
  • Lacking clearly defined business or real estate objectives.
  • Focusing exclusively on financial costs.
  • Failing to appoint a project leader as the internal single point of contact.
  • Making inaccurate estimations of the company’s space requirements.
  • Acting too slowly once a decision is made, and consequently missing out on opportunities.
  • Agreeing to terms prior to obtaining a logistics consultant.
  • Failing to allow for future expansion or contraction.
  • Lacking the knowledge of future opportunities; often, the best deals are secured well in advance of space becoming available.
  • Failing to leave enough time at the end of the lease to fulfill “make good” obligations, or failing to understand the exact terms of your tenant improvement allowance.
