I receive calls like this almost every week…. “Hello, my lease is expiring and I need a new office space” or “Hi, we’re moving our company to Los Angeles and we need new office space.”
Inevitably, when I inquire about their timing they say they’re in need of a new space in one or two months. Although that time frame is possible it brings difficulties. A big misunderstanding among first-time commercial lessees, as well as many experienced lessees is that a commercial space can be found, negotiated, and leased within a couple of weeks.
