Landlord Financing is the means in which one works with their landlord to reduce payments or receive low cost benefits.
1. Office Rent: when renting a commercial space, it often comes “as is”; this means that all improvements and remodeling are paid by you. Try negotiating with your landlord to pay as much of the restructuring costs as possible. If that doesn’t work, ask that you not pay any rent until the office space is completely ready. In addition, you can negotiate with your landlord for a few free months of rent for every year of service loyalty to his complex or that they provide some office desks and chairs for you.
2. Subleasing: You can attempt to split the cost of your rent costs by sharing an office space with another business. Not only can you minimize early costs, but you could potentially create new business relationships that could benefit your company later on.
