Veterinary Office Lease Review & Rent Analysis | Critical Dates and Risk Assessment

Our lease negotiators will thoroughly review your lease for important dates, potential problem areas and risks, and develop a lease improvement and negotiation strategy to help you achieve fair and equitable leasing terms to protect your financial investment and prevent landlords from gaining an unfair advantage.

Some of the key issues we highlight include:

  • Relocation Rights: Does your office lease give your landlord the right to relocate your practice? If so, who pays for moving costs, demolition and/or renovations?
  • Assignment Provisions: Is there language in your lease that can prevent you from selling your practice, or that permits your landlord to proceeds of your eventual practice sale?
  • Protection and Security: Is there a death and disability clause in place that will protect your estate and family in the event something unexpected happens and you are unable to work?
  • Term and Options: Does your lease offer sufficient term and options to renew the lease, and are these options transferable to a future buyer?
  • Renovations & Improvements: Does the lease give you the right to make improvements to your veterinary clinic, and upgrade the space? If so, will you be required remove these improvements at some point down the road on your dime? This venture can easily cost you $150,000 or more in demolition and/or renovations expenses.
