Rented Office Spaces
Purchasing an office is always an option – but most companies, particularly in their start-up or growth phase, prefer to rent their workspace instead.
What is a rented office space?
A rented office space is a building or part of a building that is let to a business for a set amount of time. Rental agreements can range from 1 month to 10 years or more, depending on the terms agreed with the property’s landlord and the equipment and facilities included in the contract.
Types of rented offices
From private and shared rental units to dedicated coworking spaces and hot desking setups, there are rented offices available to suit your business at any stage of its journey. It really comes down to what you are looking for from your new workspace – and, of course, how much you are willing to pay.
One thing you’ll need to consider when searching for the right rented office space is whether you want to be able to walk straight into your new premises without any delay, or whether you are happy to arrange vital things like Wi-Fi and tea and coffee facilities yourself. Bear in mind that serviced offices usually provide all the amenities and perks you need to work comfortably, including daily cleaning services, stocked kitchens, and even useful extras like access to an onsite gym or invitations to onsite networking events.
You will also need to think about what kind of layout will suit you and your team best. A private office will give you the peace and quiet you need to get the job done – but on the other hand, if creativity and collaboration is more important to you, you might want to explore open-plan offices, shared rooms, or coworking hubs. Most rented offices will include a reception area, a boardroom, and one or more meeting rooms, so all the practical considerations will be taken care of.
Fully equipped or flexed to your needs
Rented offices are available furnished, part-furnished, or completely unfurnished, so you can choose to source your own equipment or enjoy the convenience of moving into a space that’s ready to go.
Flexible agreements for growing businesses
Thanks to the post-pandemic shift to remote and hybrid working – and the general economic uncertainty we’re all facing! – today’s office landlords understand that companies don’t want to be tied into their rental contract for a long time; they want the scope to upgrade or downsize their premises if things change.
As a result, many operators are willing to offer more flexible terms on their lease agreements. So, while you may be searching for a long-term rented office space that you’ll be able to call home for many years to come, rest assured there are plenty of flexible opportunities out there, too.
