Also, the advantageous characteristics are the presence of parking, video surveillance systems, round-the-clock security, convenient transport links, a separate bathroom, etc. - all these bonuses are an indisputable plus for your business.
Rent of offices and commercial real estate in Minsk
When looking for an option for renting an office or commercial real estate, it is important to pay attention to the following characteristics of the room: area, interior, layout features, maximum load on the power grid, nearby territory, availability of hoods, parking, Internet access and the number of dedicated telephone lines. Only then should you look for a suitable property.
Registration of a lease agreement
It is recommended to consider several options at once. Even if the first premise partially meets the criteria and is suitable for the price, it is better to take your time and compare it with other offers. The main point for those who plan to rent a building for a cafe: all documents must be studied very carefully, literally reading every word. If necessary, it is better to contact realtors, who will help you understand all the details and not miss anything. Be sure to study the following: the purpose of the rental space ‒ sometimes it may not be suitable for establishments, for example, catering. Remember, small print is the most common trick, so you need to read it carefully, paying attention to the ambiguous clauses about canceling the lease; utility bills - you need to figure out what exactly needs to be paid and in what amount; rental vacations - are they available, what is their duration.
