To compete in today’s business environment, corporate tenants should demand more from their commercial lease. After all, real estate often represents a company’s second greatest expense after personnel costs.
Now more than ever, a commercial lease must be more than just a liability on the balance sheet. It should be nothing less than a flexible, powerful asset tailor-made for a business.

When you negotiate directly with a landlord – even if it’s “only a renewal” – you’re facing a stacked deck.
The insight and market knowledge provided by the team at Choyce Peterson helps even the playing field. You’ll be armed with full knowledge of the current market dynamics and competitive opportunities. In fact, many clients secure a more favorable deal from their landlord on even simple renewals simply because they engaged us first. The mere fact that you bring in a tenant-only specialist tells your landlord that you’re serious, and fully informed.
Here are just a few of the advantages Choyce Peterson’s tenant-only expertise can bring to your side of the table.
Rent is likely your second biggest expense, after salaries. Get it right from the beginning with expert negotiation that maximizes your leverage.
Why do landlords offer free rent? Because they have to – when the right negotiating points are made. We’ll help you secure the maximum, sometimes as much as twelve months.
Often ignored by tenants, it’s key to future flexibility. Get terms that allow you to pursue any opportunity, whether it’s reducing your footprint, expanding or merging your business.
Buried in your rent agreement is your share of the ever-increasing cost of operating a building. How is it calculated? Will it be tied to hard costs or a percentage of rent? We’ll show you the best option for your space.
As a tenant, you’ll pay a share of the real estate tax relative to your space. But what about increases? What is the base year? The answer, and the terms, can mean thousands of dollars.
Electric is a profit center for many landlords. They understand it in a way you never will: connected vs. demand load; rent inclusion vs. sub-meter; watts per square foot usable vs. rentable. We can guide you through it so you don’t leave money on the table.
While it’s difficult to see down the road and future space needs, we’ll help you secure options for expansion. Right of first refusal or right of first offer? We’ll help you lock in your best option.
Negotiating renewal terms up-front is an under-valued aspect of many agreements. Whether a fixed price or percentage of fair market value, we’ll win you smart options from day one.
A favorite of landlords, this means you can moved to accommodate a larger future tenant. It can be a dealbreaker, but doesn’t have to be. We’ll help you ensure the caliber and suitability of any relocation options – and ensure the landlord covers all your expenses.
If the landlord is building your space, you want to understand what is and what isn’t included. Do you have special power needs? Who is paying for the Class E hookup of the life safety system.
