Leasing Or Buying Commercial Property

Commercial Property – Your Second Home

When it comes to commercial property, it can be tricky to decide whether you should buy it or lease it. You’ve got your business plan, you’re ready to start trading but you need a home for your business. Your business premises will home your staff, welcome your customers and hold your stock and furniture. This will be your office and you will potentially be spending more time in the business premises than anywhere else.

Your Second Home Vs Your Home

Thinking about residential property, it is easy to decide to buy rather than rent, because you can afford to buy and the mortgage lender will be there to assist you. But commercial property is a different matter, a far more complex scenario, which will require expert advice to help you decide whether to buy or lease. In order to choose to buy or rent your home, you only need to consult with your mortgage lender, but choosing to buy your second home that homes your business, you will need to contact a solicitor with expertise in the commercial property area.

Weigh Up The Cost

If you have cash or loaned funds, you can certainly buy property from a seller. But you have to weigh up the pros and cons of owning the property, together with all its expenses. Remember that by law, certain expenses are the property owner or landlord’s responsibility. Whereas as a lease holder, you are relieved or certain financial responsibilities with the property. You need to weigh up the cost.
