Leasing a commercial real estate can be a confusing issue for most entrepreneurs and small business owners. The professional real estate agents often add to this confusion by being diplomatic for their own vested interests. Commercial real estate investments involve a lot of money, and an imprudent move can result in a huge loss for the owner. Nowadays, most of the new commercial real estate businesses are started by leasing office space, as it provides a cheaper alternative to purchasing a new space. Here are some tips on how to lease commercial real estate.Develop a Proper Network Having a proper network of experienced real estate brokers, solicitors, contractors and investors is necessary to find the best deal. It is always good to check out references and arrange meetings with such qualified people, in order to find and execute profitable deals. One can also take the help of local professionals, who in turn can provide useful leads and contacts. It is advisable to read local newspapers and the city newsletters, to understand the various aspects of the real estate market. The knowledge of the current real estate statistics are helpful for the owners to come up with a profitable and feasible lease rent.Find a Reliable Tenant It is always important to look out for tenants who have a good reputation in business. In case some damage occurs to the property, the owner has to get it fixed, and he/she may have to pay out quite a bit to ensure that it remains in good condition. Tenants that pay late, break contracts, or mishandle the property, can become very problematic at times. Therefore it is advisable for the owner to be a part of the business, and get involved with his clients and the building. The investment and the profits borne would collapse, if the owner becomes casual about it.Negotiate for a Profitable Deal The owner should always keep in mind that the fees money, including the brokerage commission, and the fees charged by accountants, attorneys and engineers, are all negotiable. He should never hesitate to ask for a lower price, as most of the service providers reduce their fees in order to guarantee ongoing future business. As large amounts of money are involved in commercial real estate transactions, the deals can be easily negotiated. The basic concept of a successful negotiation is the knowledge and empathy of each party, with regard to the major issues faced by the other. A balanced perspective is often helpful for a deal, which is good for both the landlord as well as the tenant.Study the Assignment Clauses in the Lease Agreement With the increase in number of fraud cases in real estate deals, the owner should be careful while reading the terms and conditions of the lease agreement. Any doubts should be immediately cleared out with the real estate agent and the tenant. Annual Increase in the Rent There is normally a change in the rent of a property, as a fixed rent over longer-term leases are rare. Some landlords opt for an annual increase in the rent, which is based on the percentage increase in the Consumer Price Index (CPI). In some commercial property leases, the increase in the property rent is capped at a fixed percentage annually (say 2% or 3%).It is good to give oneself some time for the research, in order to avoid a bad investment. There is of course no sure shot way to make a wise investment, but the awareness of market conditions and one's own finances, can definiately help the owner to come up with a profitable lease for his commercial real estate.

I value the knowledge on your site. Many thanks!"awarding in excess of $4 million in rebates to consumers of utilities companies during the course of this year. In fact Chairman of the Commission, Justice Prem Persaud, Cheap Jerseys Online, in an interview with this publication related that over the period of about five years, more than $15 million was refunded to consumers.Tasked with regulating, Wholesale Cheap Jerseys, investigating and enforcing measures to govern the operations of the local utility companies, including those responsible for electricity, NFL Jerseys Cheap, water and telephone, the PUC often carries out its mandate based on complaints from consumers.  It is also charged with monitoring the activities of such entities.PUC Chairman, Justice Prem PersaudWith the Guyana Power and Light Inc.(GPL), China Jerseys Cheap, Guyana Water Incorporated Inc. (GWI), Guyana Telephone and Telegraph Company (GT&T) and Digicel under its purview, the PUC has the power to initiate and conduct investigations into the operations and standards of service offered by these public utility companies.Similar to previous years, Justice Persaud revealed that the utility company which was required to pay the most refunds to customers following interventions was GPL.He disclosed that it was in recognition of the fact that GPL offers a very essential service to consumers, representation was made by the Commission to have the PUC Act amended. This move, according to Justice Persaud, allowed for timeframes to be outlined within which certain works must be done by the electricity company.“As soon as they breach the timeframe a penalty kicks in…They have to pay per day whenever they default…be it late reconnection or new installation…every time they fail to do what they are required to, a cost is imposed, ” the PUC Chairman informed.Each time GPL delays in providing a service as detailed in the stipulation it is ordered to pay residential customers $1, Wholesale China Jerseys, 000 per day, a cost which is doubled in the case of commercial services. With respect to GT&T, the PUC was able to forge an agreement which saw the telephone company submitting to an unfixed rule to reduce its rates in proportion to a fixed month, if it delays providing certain services to consumers within a prescribed three-day period.According to the PUC Chairman, GPL usually proves to be the most troublesome, while Digicel is viewed as the least trouble to consumers. “We have done a lot for consumers…some consumers were overbilled or the utility services defaulted in what they have to do with respect to the services they provide, but we were able to get a lot back for consumers, ” Justice Persaud asserted.With less than three weeks remaining in 2012, Wholesale NFL China Jerseys, the PUC has to date received a total of 513 complaints with 316 being attributed to GPL of which 250 have been resolved; 107 for GT&T of which 99 were resolved; 85 for GWI of which 76 have been resolved,   and five for Digicel, all of which were resolved. Most of the complaints were related to billing and there were instances of disconnection which warranted the intervention of the PUC. Last year a total of 504 complaints were recorded by the PUC.According to Justice Persaud, although the Commission is required to intervene on behalf of consumers it has become evident that the bills consumers prefer to pay are those related to the electricity and telephone services.At the moment GWI is seeking to have the PUC approve a tariff harmonisation plan which could see water rates being increased for some consumers and lowered for others. But according to Justice Persaud, “GWI is right now in a bad way; people are stealing (water), they prefer to pay for telephone and electricity and very few people are disconnected from those two services (electricity and telephone) but not the same for GWI…people prefer not to pay for water”.Nevertheless he admitted that it was a fairly successful year for the Commission which, in March, expanded its reach by opening a branch in Berbice. Justice Persaud informed that the Commission is currently mulling further expansion in Region Two and Region 10. In the interim, though, he noted that one of the hallmarks of the PUC that will be sustained in the coming year is its public education drive which is taken regularly to schools, market places and other public locations, with a view of highlighting the important role of the Commission.
