Have you always wanted an office space but never had the opportunity to find one? Have you tried unsuccessfully to find a suitable space and are now frustrated with the rent prices? If so, it sounds like this post is for you. In this blog post, I will teach you how to find a suitable office for rent KL- which not only includes finding a location that is good for your business but also finding a place that is affordable.
1. The first step is to have a plan.
Since you have already tried unsuccessfully to find an office space, this means that you have tried a very unplanned and non-strategic method. So if your goal is to find an office space, it’s important that you stick to a plan. To do this, make a list of things that you will have to accomplish in order to set up your business (if you haven’t done this yet).
Rule of thumb: to maximize effectiveness, the more options you have in your plan, the better.
For example, if your business requires hiring more staff, you’ll need a bigger office. If you need the office to cater to a specific industry and the required size will be different in each industry, then you’ll need to find different offices suitable for each industry. Unless of course, your company has a very specific requirement that is not listed above. That’s OK too. So long as it fits with your overall plan and doesn’t have any conflicts.
2. Find out the current office prices in your area
You can find the price of an office for rent KL by signing up on classifieds websites, or by directly calling or visiting the landlord. If you’re comfortable asking for information, make sure you ask for a concrete offer. If the landlord is willing to tell you the rent amount, ask them to give it in terms of monthly rent and deposit amount. If not, try to estimate it based on your research.
3. Put your plan into action
Next, you should arrange a meeting with the landlord. This can be done through the classifieds website (mentioned above), or by calling/visiting the landlord’s office directly with all the necessary paperwork. The landlord is only required to give you loupes and help you set up your office. The landlord rarely asks for any money upfront. (Note: if the landlord refuses to hear your offer in person, it’s best to just stay away from the property.)
4. Submit an offer
Once you’ve arranged a meeting with the landlord, submit your offer and be prepared to negotiate. (Note: it is also a good idea if you have an agent present who has already signed a lease agreement with the landlord and can act as your representative.
5. Sign the lease agreement
After that, you should sign the lease agreement immediately after submitting your offer. This is the final step before moving in.
If you’re not sure about anything, make a call to the landlord, or even visit the office directly. This is especially important if you are inexperienced in leasing out properties. Don’t be afraid to ask questions, as long as they are reasonable and do not disrupt the landlord with unnecessary requests (eg: requesting changes to the original agreement that has already been signed). You can also ask your agent to have a chat with the landlord on your behalf if you prefer that.
