Starting your own small business or moving to a new location in Massachusetts can be an exciting time full of possibilities. You may have great plans for your business at its new location, and you may be eager to sign a lease and start as quickly as possible. However, it is important that you do your due diligence before jumping into a business transaction that places so much of your resources on the line.
Before you sign a commercial lease, you would be wise to take your time and perhaps even prepare a checklist of items to complete before putting your signature on a contract. One of the worst outcomes you can expect is to sign a long-term lease on a property and later discover the terms of the lease or the property itself is not conducive to your business' success.
