Fast and easy lease renewal FAQs
How do I know when my lease is up?
We’ll give you advance notice. Most H.G. Fenton Company tenants sign between a 3- and 5-year lease term, which expires at the end of the applicable term period. You can count on receiving a Lease Renewal Questionnaire approximately 6-9 months prior to your lease expiration.
How long does the process take?
Our goal is to make the lease renewal process as easy and stress-free as possible. We will provide you with a timeline, so you will know exactly what to expect and when.
I used a broker when I signed my original lease. Do I need one now?
You don’t. H.G. Fenton Company has an experienced in-house leasing team to serve you. Your best interest and long-term tenancy with us is our top priority. Of course, if you prefer to retain a broker, you are welcome to.
Can you give me a quick overview of the lease signing process?
Absolutely. Here’s what you’ll need to do:
- Check the lease carefully for conformance with our intent
- Initial each page in the space indicated
- Be sure to sign in all the spaces marked for signature
- Section 11 of the lease outlines requirements for insurance. Review this with your insurance agency to ensure you have appropriate coverage
- Complete the hazardous materials questionnaire and sign where highlighted
- Return the signed lease with the appropriate funds for the first month’s base rent and security deposit
What if I need more help with my lease?
Just ask us. Your H.G. Fenton Company leasing manager is here to help you handle your move in so you can quickly get your business running.
Relocation and space management service
If your space needs have changed, your leasing manager will start the tenant improvement process or help you locate other space within the H.G. Fenton portfolio. We are committed to your satisfaction. If we don’t have a space that meets your needs, we’ll refer you to other sources that can help you.
