St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) December 7, 2007
Tenant Representative expert, Tenant Rep Agency, LLC, announced the launching of website designed expressly to mentor commercial office leasing tenants in dealing with landlords and real estate agents worldwide.
In the real estate world, the landlord usually holds the cards. It is the landlord who builds or buys the building, arranges the financing, constructs the interiors, as well as hires the leasing agent and property management company. The landlord writes the leases and pays for the attorney to avoid the leases being changed. The landlord knows exactly how much money he will spend on construction, leasing commissions and concessions; he knows exactly how much he will spend on operating expenses and exactly how much he will charge the tenants. Now there is a website designed specifically for the tenant...a comprehensive site containing all the inside knowledge required to do more than just level the playing field with the landlord, but to actually grant the control to the tenant. OfficeTenant.com contains all of the inside information to avoid landlord tricks, control many costly details and manage a lengthy process.
According to Tenant Rep Agency Chairman, Christopher Desloge "Companies seeking to lease office space have long been relegated to only two solutions: Either hire a broker or do it themselves without leadership. Many executives and company owners find themselves working with conflicts of interests as many real estate brokers represent tenants and building owners simultaneously. OfficeTenant.com now provides comprehensive mentoring to companies to guide them on their own, or to tutor them with working with professionals in office leasing."
The site provides direct advice on subjects including needs assessment, hiring the right real estate and architectural professionals, managing the current space, understanding the real estate market, developing building technical data, operating expenses, tenant improvement allowances, and managing the construction process and move in.
OfficeTenant.com also delivers advice on how to negotiate office leases, understand the sophisticated lease documents, seek and achieve economic development incentives and manage disputes with landlords.
For the deployment of office relocation, OfficeTenant.com also provides select vendor information for moving companies, office furniture, architects, contractors, truck rental, printing, computers and equipment. Vendors will be provided with geo-specific target access in order that local companies can be exposed to local tenants.
Tenants will have access to the status of buyer's and tenant agency laws in each US state, and over time access to statues in other countries. Tenant Advocacy will also be available to tenants via a tenant representation agency referral network should tenants elect the need.
The website will be available in numerous languages to accommodate the diverse population of the planet.
OfficeTenant.com is accepted under the Better Buisness Bureau Online Reliability Program and as a member subscribes to the principles and services of the Better Business BUreau.
