Transparent Process

We believe that mitigating risk, removing uncertainty and reducing real estate costs should be the goals of every Tenant. Historically, listing brokers and Landlords conditioned Tenants to focus only on what is available and affordable, not what is achievable in a negotiation. Occupier Services turns the traditional real estate model on its head by offering Tenants transparency to see what is possible in the process of a Lease transaction.

Lease Benchmarking

Benchmarking identifies Lease provisions that may cost a Tenant more money than necessary. It often provides valuable information a tenant can use to obtain more favourable terms when renewing or renegotiating an existing Lease.

Lab Needs Analysis

The cost to build and/or Lease lab space is extraordinarily expensive, so the key to reducing real estate costs lies in determining what exactly is required. Analyzing the size and number of research teams, the type of research conducted, specialized equipment and facilities, lab support services, additional space needs and how each interact is critical to obtaining the right Lab Occupier solution.

Toronto Life Sciences

The best approach to finding lab space in the Greater Toronto Area depends on the type of space required. Many startups who are open to sharing space rely on networking within the Ontario Life Sciences Corridor to identify potential options. However, current demand for lab space in Canada is so high and supply all but non-existent, that lab space is often leased before it comes to market. Purpose-designed lab buildings are in the works, but they will not deliver space for months/years, so companies in need of lab space need to speak with industry leaders who are made aware of options before they reach the market.

Lease Restructure

Tenants are often surprised their real estate Lease can be renegotiated prior to expiry. Depending on the Landlord’s position and market circumstances there may be opportunities to immediately reduce expenses by extending the Lease term, obtaining new inducements, removing clauses that favour the Landlord and/or Landlord rights that will increase Tenant real estate costs.
