Moving offices is a necessary part of every growing business. It’s inevitable that a location will eventually outgrow your needs and you’ll have to move. When it comes to leasing commercial property though, you’ll need to deal with your ‘Make Good’ Clause before leaving (and this could mean undertaking an office or shop defit or strip out).
This clause refers to how a property should be left by tenants at the end of a lease term and all tenants, whether they’re occupying Brisbane offices or Sydney shops,etc must uphold their ‘Make Good’ Clause.
When first taking occupation of a property, you receive a report detailing the current state of the office. This will cover its lighting, flooring, walls and fixtures. Upon leaving, landlords will compare this to how the property appears after being stripped out. Failure to adhere to this clause (or leaving the area dirty and unkempt) can have negative consequences. This could lead to financial penalties or a negative note against your company!
Now you know what you’re in for when leasing commercial property, but what do you do about it when the time comes? Well, if you’re in the Brisbane area and need an office defit done or maybe in Sydney and need a shop strip out sorted, tile rip-ups to timber floor removal, Totally Stripped should be your first call.
