Why would anyone take an office on a 5 year fixed term lease?
The answer is, we really don’t know! With a standard commercial property lease, most businesses have no option but to sign up for 5 years. Yet a business centre like Hexagon offers its larger offices on as low as one month rolling contracts, which gives infinitely more flexibility.
Larger businesses that require multiple offices often do not think about a business centre, but Hexagon Business Centres has a number of larger office suites that are perfect for organisations of all sizes.
Abbie Willcox, Hexagon’s Centre Manager said, “We have a couple of large stand alone office suites, some with their own private meeting room, that an organisation can rent with just a 3 month notice period. Our offices can accommodate from 1 to 20 members of staff, giving growing businesses total flexibility rather than being tied to one office for a long period.”
In these uncertain times, having a low risk option for office space is attractive to many businesses who want a professional working environment. The simple inclusive monthly licence fee includes business rates and electricity as well as maintenance of the public areas, parking, signage and more.
Abbie adds, “The monthly licence fee includes many of the unseen costs, like the maintenance that the reception team here looks after on behalf of the tenants. We also have high-speed gigabit broadband and telephony available on site which make it easy for businesses to move in and start work immediately.”
What has been very obvious during the Coronavirus lockdown is the cost of property to a business. With people working at home, the monthly rent and rates payable on a large office that is standing empty can be the final straw for many businesses struggling to survive. Those who want more flexibility would do well to investigate more flexible terms at a business centre.
From October 2020 we will have three new office suites at our Wittas House centre so what better a time to start your serviced office search!
