London Workspace process

Understanding the brief...

Before we start our search for your perfect office, we will work with you to full understand exactly what you need. We will take in to consideration, your business type, your particular needs and your future plans and objectives, to understand what office environment would best work for you. At London Workspace, we understand that every business is unique and treat each requirement with a fresh approach. Getting to know how your organisation works, and what your future growth plans are, all help us ensure we have the best brief possible to source the ideal space for your business.

Searching for new office space...

With a clear brief at hand we will begin the search to uncover your ideal office space. We conduct bespoke searches specific to your needs. Our dedicated researchers ensure that we are kept up to date on all available offices in the market at any given time, giving us complete access to every available office space in London. During the search process we will advise on the suitability of potential offices, offering space planning and building surveys so you are completely reassured that the office will work for your business.

Negotiating the best deal...

Once we locate the perfect office for your business we begin the process of negotiating the best lease terms for you. Negotiating on property leases is what we do best! Our understanding of the market and knowledge of the best achievable lease terms is unparalleled. Knowing what can be achieved on the rent, the amount of rent free, the service charge, break clauses and many other lease terms, means you will agree the very best deal on any office space you acquire. Below are some of the main negotiation points that we cover when negotiating on your behalf:

  • Rent
  • Rent free period
  • Service charge liabilities
  • Incentives / capital contributions
  • Lease length
  • Rental Deposit
  • Break options
  • Rates and rights to appeal
  • FRI / IRI Lease
  • Rent reviews and conditions
  • Security of tenure
  • Alienation clauses – rights to sublet and assign
  • Landlord capital contributions
  • Schedule of condition
  • Repairs, reinstatement and dilapidations

Managing the relocation...

Throughout the acquisition process we will advise on the requirement for any further professional services and co-ordinate as necessary. For example, if a services or structural survey is necessary we will recommend suitable consultants / suppliers and liaise with them as required. Once an office has been secured, we will advise on the process of fitting out the office. We provide assistance with space planning and design, appointing a suitable fit out contractor as well as advising on the selection of furniture and IT/Telecoms installation.
