Lease Negotiations

There are five times in your business life when you may need us to get involved with your landlord. After working with landlords across the country for over thirty years, we have developed several successful strategies and techniques that address the five examples below.

1. You're ready to sign a lease for the first time. Leases favor the landlord, and your lawyer will check only the legality of the lease, making sure that the legal terms are correct, etc. And that’s what he’s supposed to do. But you can do better, a lot better. We will show you how to negotiate the best lease terms, or we can do it for you. We have been providing this service for other small business owners for over 30 years, and we know what we are doing. If we don’t save you money and reduce your risk, then you don’t pay us. That’s right. We have 100% money-back guarantee! In most cases, we have been able to save our clients from $15,000 to $30,000 on a standard 6500 square feet lease. What could you do with an extra $15,000 to $30,000?

2. Your lease is up for renewal. Instead of just signing and agreeing 100% to the landlord's terms as written in the original lease, why not try to save money? Once again, we will show you how to negotiate the best lease terms, or we can do it for you. Don’t forget, in 1981 you could buy a home for $89,000, a new car for $8,000, and computers weren’t even for sale to the average consumer. Times have changed. Let us show you how to capitalize on the changing times. None of us could have even imagined 10 to 20 years ago that rents would be where they are today.

3. Your landlord is not performing. Has your landlord or property manager let you down? Have repairs and maintenance been negelected around the building or shopping center? Once again, we can come to your rescue. While showing you how to successfully negotiate with your landlord to fix roof leaks, parking lights, pot holes, and other items the landlord is most likely responsible for, we’ll put your mind at ease with our proven strategies and techniques.

4. Challenging business climate.
Has the economy forced you to be late on your payments? Is your landlord growing impatient and preparing to evict you? We can help. While showing you how to successfully negotiate with your landlord, or doing it for you, we’ll put your mind at ease with our proven strategies and techniques.
5. You're contemplating closing your business and throwing in the towel! You have a huge liability and exposure on the remaining term of your lease. We’ll show you how to negotiate full closure of your business and limit your risk and exposure, or we can do it for you. We know many creative ways to help you come out a winner and, yes, you’ll be left standing on your own two feet. You’ve heard of the nightmare stories, where tenants are required to continue to pay rent, even when they’re not occupying the space. For one club owner in Sacramento, California, we were able to eliminate $90,000 of exposure, thus allowing the club owner to exit with dignity and without filing for bankruptcy. Don’t be fooled by your landlord; let us put our 30 years of experience to work for you.

FitForms provides three unique services that will really make a difference:

1. Consulting: We will evaluate your situation, examine your lease, and consult on the appropriate action.

2. Coaching: We will coach you with your lease negotiations. You do the actual negotiations; we coach you to success.

3. We Do It For You: Our most popular program. We can step in at the beginning stages or later when you are not making the progress that you desire. We do it all for you. We communicate and negotiate with your landlord, their lawyers, and your lawyer and keep you current on the status. A typical facility owner may negotiate a lease every 3 to 5 years; we do it every week. Who do you think will have  the knowledge, skills, and ideas on negotiations strategies that really work? The answer of course is FitForms.

After we help you negotiate favorable terms with your landlord, we always recommend that you consult with your attorney to ensure the document is correct. We are not lawyers, nor do we provide legal advice. Much of the work we do for fitness center owners is consulting and coaching, and by taking advantage of our years of experience, you will be assured to come out on top with many more concessions than you could ever have imagined.

If we don’t save you money, we will refund your payment in full with no questions asked. And in case you’re wondering, during our 30 years of helping fitness centers, this has never happened.

We are available for private consultation and encourage you to give us a call today. We will be happy to discuss your situation, with no obligation on your part. If we feel that we can be of assistance to you, we will provide you with specific recommendations, including objectives, time frames, and costs.
