We act for both landlords and tenants. Our primary focus is office, industrial and retail space, located in the Halifax Regional Municipality.
Tenant representation occurs when the tenant retains the broker to act on the tenant's behalf. The broker is legally obligated to act in the best interest of the tenant; however the broker's fee is recoverable from the landlord. Our key competitive advantages are (1) a clear written contract, (2) the deployment of salaried professionals who concentrate only on leasing, and (3) access to details on virtually all of the space available for lease in the Halifax Regional Municipality.
Our Tenant Representation Agreement is straight forward: unambiguous yet well documented. Our client is the tenant, or prospective tenant and we enter into a signed contract whereby we are legally obligated to act in their best interest. The contract defines what we do to locate the "best deal" for the tenant.
Our salaried leasing personnel have access to details on virtually all of the space available for lease within the Halifax Regional Municipality. It flows into our computer from landlords on a daily basis. Through their knowledge of the market our leasing personnel are also able to search out and locate elusive space that may better fit our client's requirements, but which is only available on a sub-let.
Once we have identified and our client has viewed suitable premises, we prepare and submit the Offers to Lease. We then negotiate the most advantageous terms for the tenant.
We act for landlords and undertake pre-leasing, lease renewals, sub-leasing, restructuring of existing leases and negotiation of lease buy-outs. Our key competitive advantages are (1) our superb marketing program, (2) the support available from our Valuation, Property Tax, Economic Intelligence, Planning, Lasercad and Counselling Divisions, (3) the deployment of salaried professionals who concentrate only on leasing.
In order to obtain the highest possible rent for the landlord it is necessary to (1) reduce the risk of the lease to the tenant to the greatest degree possible and, (2) expose the premises to the largest number of qualified, potential tenants.
To reduce the tenant's uncertainty, we draw upon the resources of our Lasercad Division's space measurement service to produce a scale plan of the premises. The lower the tenant's perceived risk of selecting unsuitably configured premises, the greater the possibility of consummating the lease transaction. The tenant's space planner can utilise our plans to "layout" their prospective operation and demonstrate in concrete terms how it will "fit" into the premises.
Proper signage, a scale plan showing the layout of the premises, extensive local contacts and co-operation with the other brokers, are the tools we use to maximise exposure to potential tenants.
