The legal Contract When Renting Office
It is necessary to determine that the upcoming building must fulfill the legal requirements and have a rental function, so here are the legal contracts when renting an office to note.
1. Subject to contract:

2. Legal of real estate for lease:
It is necessary to determine that a building to be leased must fully fulfill the legal requirements and have a rental function under the conditions specified in the Housing Law 2014.

Pursuant to the provisions of the Housing Law and the Real Estate Business Law, real estate transactions and business, especially real estate in social housing projects (including buildings with written rooms for lease), the lessor must be the investor. In case the lessor is not the investor but only the management company, subsidiary, or sub-leasing unit …, there must be a written authorization or lease contract that includes an entitlement clause. sublet.
4. Lease term:
Companies often do not want to permanently lease a location, but many office buildings are now not able to satisfy tenants with tenor less than a year. Therefore, the parties need to agree on a reasonable lease term for both parties, and at the same time decide the time for the move after the end of the contract next to the lease term.
5. How to calculate the rent and office area:
It is necessary to determine what prices are covered by the agreed parties and what should not be included in the different clauses.
Many leases offer common ground rent per square meter. This price can be confusing. Sometimes it includes unusable spaces, such as hallways and elevators. In that case, look at the total payable. Sometimes a slightly smaller space at a slightly higher price per square meter may be more efficient for your business, as space is more streamlined and has a higher use-value.

If during the deposit period, any party violates the performance of the contract, such as the Lessor leases to another person or the Lessee does not come to rent as agreed, the regulation of deposit penalty on the issuing party may apply. violation.

However, any damage arising from the Lessee’s impact during the office lease process, the Lessee must be solely responsible.
8. Transfer issue:
It is necessary to anticipate that, in the future, there may be a need for either party to transfer the Office Lease Contract with a third party. Therefore, whether the term of the assignment is accepted by the other Party and if so, what conditions should be attached (Price, lease term if any, subject, meanings obligations and responsibilities between parties…) should be clarified in the contract itself.
