1. Consider your needs

First, you must consider what needs you have for commercial real rent. How many m2 must the commercial real estate be? Do you need your own parking? How long should the rental period be? Where in the city should the location be - should the commercial real estate be on the outskirts of the city or in the center? How much are you willing to pay in rent? What should the property look like? Which floor will the room be on? Should the commercial real estate be in scenic surroundings? Should the building be located close to the beach?

3. Contact the landlord

When you have found the commercial real estate for rent that you are interested in, you must contact the landlord with a view to getting a demonstration of the commercial real estate so that you can see it with your own eyes.

4. Have the lease checked by a lawyer

When you have found your new commercial real estate for rent and you have an agreement with the landlord that they will be rented to you, you must sign a lease with the landlord. It is important that you get advice from a lawyer so that you make sure that everything is in order, that it is the optimal contract you have been given by the landlord and that the contract complies with the laws. A contract must contain, among other things, information about the rent, binding period, deposit, heat consumption, condition when moving in, description of the commercial property, etc. Always have a lawyer or legal practitioner check the lease and the lease before you sign it.

5. Check out the landlord properly

If the landlord is himself a tenant in the commercial real estate, it is not certain that he may sublet it to you. In that situation, ask the landlord to document his permission to sublet the commercial rental.

6. Deposit

Once you have signed the lease, you must pay a deposit to the landlord. The deposit is a security for the landlord should you cause damage to the commercial real estate or not pay the rent. The deposit is typically 3 months' rent. Once both you and the commercial real estate provider have signed the lease, you will typically have several days to transfer the deposit.

7. Make a clear agreement on moving in

Remember to make a clear agreement with the landlord about the transfer. When can you move in? When will you get the keys? etc. etc.

8. Relocation

When everything is in place, you can start moving into your new commercial real estate. Remember to report the move to the CVR register when you move your company.
