Working with a tenant representative can result in major cost savings for you and your business. At Fountainhead Commercial, we work diligently to ensure we negotiate a deal that is in the best interest of your business.

The Situation

A global client with over 150 locations needed to reduce overhead and refresh office finishes.

The Challenges

In order to do so, Fountainhead needed to evaluate their portfolio to determine where there was an opportunity to consolidate offices/relocate or renegotiate existing lease agreements while securing maximum tenant improvement dollars and other economic incentives.

The Result

Created a database tool to track all of the client’s lease administration including office size, rental rates, net expenses, remaining term, number of employees, and utility costs. Utilized information from the database, in addition to research on each market, to identify which metropolitan areas were most likely to provide maximum savings on renegotiation or relocation; identified and planned consolidation in 25 international markets.

Over the next twelve-month period we pursued decreased rent, tenant improvement dollars, free rent, and other concessions from the respective landlords. The client saved approximately 26% on their global occupancy cost, which equated to over $5,000,000 per year and approximately $27,000,000 over the renegotiated term.

The Stat

If your business has locations across the United States, or even around the world, Fountainhead Commercial can help reduce overhead costs and renegotiate existing lease agreements. Contact us today to learn more.

The client relocated six-months prior to their existing lease expiration, saved 23% on the initially quoted new building rental rate, negotiated a full tenant build-out, and secured a moving allowance in excess of $100,000. In addition, the client was successful in terminating the former lease agreement 5-months prior to lease expiration saving approximately $95,000.

The Situation

Rayburn was tasked with quickly identifying flex office options within north Denver and the I-36 corridor, for immediate occupancy.

The Challenges

The Result

The top option from the tour was selected and a letter of intent was negotiated within 15-days of engagement. The client had a fully negotiated lease within 35-days and took occupancy of the new premises on the 47th day.

Published in Case Studies

An administrative office in the healthcare industry came to Justin Rayburn, tenant representative, to renew and restructure an existing lease agreement.

The Situation

The client was in a long-term lease obligation at a rental rate that was 15% above current market rents in their building and in need of interior renovations completed within the premises.

The Challenges

The client didn’t have the time or in-depth expertise needed to go head-to-head with their landlord—that’s where we came in. To successfully restructure the lease, Rayburn knew he would have to start negotiating early. Without sufficient lead time, they’d lose any leveraging power they had. To determine the new leasing agreements, Rayburn performed a property evaluation, market analysis, and financial analysis. After doing so, he sought a lower rental rate and much-needed tenant improvements.

The Result

Rayburn restructured the lease agreement 13 months prior to the natural lease expiration. The client received over $175,000 in economic value through rent savings and other economic concessions and tenant improvements were completed within the premises prior to the initially scheduled lease expiration.

The Stat

Rayburnacted as the tenant representative for the lease renewal and restructure.
