How long should I sign a commercial property lease for?
There is really no standard answer for that. It really depends on the type of business, it depends on the amount of investment that the landlord is going to make, that the tenant is going to make. Typically for example, a restaurant use or a medical use would be a longer term lease, a general office use could be a shorter term lease because the investment isn't the same. A lot of times companies are growing and they need to start out small and get bigger and therefore they're going to want a shorter term lease in order to accommodate that future growth.
