1. Consider your needs

First of all, you must consider what needs you have for office premises to rent. How many m2 should the premises be? Will you have your own parking? How long should the rental period be? What should the location be like - should the premises be on the outskirts of the city or in the centre? How much are you willing to pay in rent? What should the property look like? Which floor will the venue be on? Should the premises be located in scenic surroundings? Should the premises be located close to the beach?

The questions are many. Once you have your needs under control, you can begin your premises search.

3. Contact the landlord

When you have found the premises that you are interested in, you must contact the landlord in order to get a demonstration of the premises, so that you can see it with your own eyes.

4. Have the lease checked by a lawyer

When you have found your new premises and you have an agreement with the landlord that they will be let to you, you must sign a lease with the landlord. It is important that you get advice from a lawyer, so 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 Commercial Lease Act. A contract must, among other things, contain information about the rent, binding period, deposit, heat consumption, condition on 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 himself is a tenant in the premises, it is not certain that he must sublet it to you. In that situation, ask the landlord to document their permission to sublet the premises.

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 premises or not pay the rent. The deposit is typically 3 months' rent. When both you and the premises provider have signed the lease, you will typically have a number of days to transfer the deposit.

7. Make a clear agreement about 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 premises. Remember to report the move to the CVR register when you move your company.
