New Site Search

Our Objective

At Your Leasing Co. our objective is to make finding your ideal site as easy and pain free as possible, while exploiting as much value from the leasing process that might be available.

Securing a lease is one of the most significant financial commitments a business owner can make. Settling on the right location has a direct impact on brand value, customer volumes and sales revenue, employee satisfaction and productivity, profit and return on the investment made in leasing the Landlords tenancy for the next 3 to 5 years or beyond.

Over a 25 year period and after more than 1,000 lease negotiations, we have developed an approach supported by a proven checklist designed to ensure that all the important elements of finding a new site are considered in making the site selection decision as easy as possible.

We assist our clients in building confidence in the decision making process, by contributing our experience and knowledge in guiding them through the entire leasing process.

Our criteria in undertaking the new site search for our clients is that it must be as stress free as possible for them and it must align the physical requirements of the new site with the strategic, financial and operational objectives of their business.

The overarching outcomes that we strive for are to Save Time, Save Money and Add Value for our clients.


Site Search Process

Our site search process includes the following:

1. Understanding The Business. At the core, we need to develop an understanding of all the information that is important in selecting a new site, such as the ideal space required, unique tenancy features, customer profile, demographics and psychographics as well as any employee requirements or fitout considerations.

This information is an important part of ensuring the new tenancy aligns with the growth, operational and profit requirements of the business.

2. The Site Search. The next step is to prepare a brief that is distributed to our professional property network. We utilise our industry connections to take advantage of off market opportunities, whilst simultaneously conducting our own inhouse research for ideal sites that meet the agreed property criteria.

3. Site Inspections and the Video Shortlist.We undertake all the site inspections on your behalf. You save time by reviewing the video walkthroughs of shortlisted sites from your desk and choose the sites you would like to inspect.

4. Negotiating and Closing the Deal. Because we know the market and deal with Landlords every day, we understand how to negotiate the optimal balance of getting the best rent as well as getting the Landlord to agree to an attractive incentives package. This may include a mix of cash incentive, fitout contribution, the Landlord undertaking work on the tenancy at their cost and providing a rent free period. We also make sure that the lease terms are acceptable. Things like the length of the lease, personal guarantees, permitted use and fair makegood provisions.

Lastly, we ensure that the deal that has been negotiated is accurately reflected in the lease documents before it is handed over to the solicitor for legal review and your execution.

It doesn’t stop there… We are a full service commercial leasing firm and from our experience we understand that coordinating with other service providers such as solicitors, designers and fitout contractors is a valuable part of getting you into your new tenancy as smoothly and quickly as possible.

I approached Mike for some advice on how to approach my landlord regarding my rental situation and the information he provided me was fantastic.

He looked at my turnover situation and gave me clear and concise advice as to how to approach the landlord and he also prepared a spreadsheet as to how much rent I needed to pay the landlord.

Mike also provide me information as to the process if the landlord was not willing to work with me.

In this difficult time for all small business when the last thing you want to worry about is the rent you need to pay you landlord. Mike’s understandings of the code of conduct and measured approach was second to none.

The time and work Mike saved me was amazing!

Your Leasing Co assisted me in March 2020 to renegotiate my lease. I’ve always gotten on ok with my landlord, however I felt quite intimidated and hesitant to ask for rent relief/reduction at the start of Covid.

Mike at your leasing co walked me through it step by step in a patient and simple manner. He even helped me draft the email.

I’m pleased to say that through Your Leasing Co’s coaching and structured process, I no longer have any hesitations to present a strong case to my landlord for relief/ reduction of commercial rent.

Kelly Cunningham originally helped us with a rent re-negotiation on our business premises some years ago. Then when the next review was due, she gave us advice that we could do substantially better by not renewing the lease. We took her advice and asked her to locate an alternative premise that would suit us in all respects.

The result of the search Kelly did for us and her negotiations with the new landlord on our behalf was that we were able to relocate the whole business to more appropriate premises with everything we needed including much better staff and client parking. Plus, the best thing of all - Kelly secured a much lower rental cost for us.

I would have no hesitation to engage Kelly’s services again for any help with our commercial premises leasing. I highly recommend her to anyone needing advice with lease terms, negotiations with landlords or location of alternative commercial premises.

Amanda and I would like to thank Kelly and Mike for the fantastic and professional job they did for us in extremely testing times. To run any business, we all face difficult situations, but to try to fund a Beauty Clinic in Melbourne during lockdown is something of another story. Kelly and Mike were always hard but fair to our Landlord and all parties were satisfied in the end.
Thanks again

I was stuck with what I needed for my business and the options she was able to give me, helped me have more clarity in my leasing and where I stand with my Landlord. Thank you very much for the time you took to read go through my lease and take my calls and emails out of office hours. Will definitely recommend Kelly and Your Leasing Co and would use them in future where needed. Thanks Kelly.
