If you decide to sign on the dotted line – make sure to review the lease or agreement carefully and have a lawyer help you review the finer details of the contract. You may notice some items are not included in the document and you should get everything in writing.
Also, don’t be afraid to set your lease or agreement for a short period of time. You may find after a few months that the shared office space is not working out and you can easily leave versus having a one-year lease. Most coworking spaces provide a variety of rental or lease options that are flexible to the business owner’s needs.
Also, make sure it’s clear in the agreement or lease what your expectations are for using the space and the building owner’s expectations of what they will permit you to do in the space. Setting the appropriate guidelines and limitations can prevent headaches later for both parties.
