Before you sign your dental office lease, do you know what you’re agreeing to? 

Landlords strive to increase the value of their properties by enforcing hidden clauses in the details of your office lease that permit them many unfair privileges like raising rents, relocating your practice, preventing your practice sale from happening, or worse.

For 20 years, Cirrus Consulting Group has been offering our dental clients the invaluable Dental Office Lease Review and Rent Analysis, a.k.a. our Critical Dates and Risk Assessment (CDRA) services. Our CDRA arms you with the information and tools essential for any upcoming lease negotiation or discussion with your landlord. Our team guarantees this lease review will help save you thousands of dollars over the life of your lease.

What to Expect in Your Dental Lease Review

Cirrus will evaluate and analyze your dental lease to review and flag important critical action dates and identify any hidden risks. Some of the key issues and clauses our experts look for include:

  • Dental Practice Relocation: Does your dental lease give your landlord the right to relocate your practice? If so, is it at your expense, or theirs?
  • Termination: Do they have the right to terminate your dental lease, and kick you out of the building at any time?
  • Protection and Security: Is there a death and disability clause your dental lease in place to protect you and your family, should something unexpected happen?
  • Term and Options: Does your lease have sufficient term and options to renew?
  • Renovations & Improvements: Does your lease give you the ability to make changes inside your dental clinic, and upgrade the space? Will you have to remove all of those improvements at some point down the road?
  • Assignment Provisions: Is there anything in your lease that could affect your ability to transfer or sell your dental practice down the line?

Creating the Plan and Educating Our Dentists

Based on the issues uncovered in your dental lease analysis, we’ll create a tactical plan on how your lease should be structured. A Cirrus dental leasing consultant will then meet with you to discuss the details of your practice, future career plans and your individual lease requirements.
