Workshop To Rent
Finding a workshop to rent in South Africa is a great idea, it can generate income if the right products are produced or sold from it. However, there is more involved to finding a workshop to rent than simply looking through the classifieds and choosing one. Pricing can vary from depending on location and other factors. You could find a great deal for R4 000 a month and a bad deal priced at R8 000 a month. You have to know what to look for, what to ask, and who to turn to for help when you can't do it on your own.
The first thing to determine is what the workshop is going to be used for and then you can get an idea on location. If you are going to use it to manufacture woodwork, location should not be a big deal. If you are going to use the workshop as a retail shop too, such as making and selling glycerine soap, location is very important.
When you see the cost of the workshop rent in the classifieds, keep in mind that this may not include anything but the building. As you go over each cost, make sure you are documenting everything. Find out when rent is due and if it includes insurance on the property, if there is a deposit and if you get it back. This is a sampling of questions you should get answers to before signing any documents.
Responsibility of Services
Renting is much different from owning and it is not always the renters responsibility to mow the lawn or spray for bugs. Find out who handles internal and external maintenance and if it is part of the rent. Check the zoning of the building to make sure you can use it for what you have in mind. Ask to see insurance papers on the building and find out if contents are included.
The best thing to do when you find a property is get professional legal help. This ensures that you are aware of all aspects of the contract and aren't getting duped by someone trying to unload property.
Finding a workshop to rent in South Africa should be a time consuming task. You need to make sure the cost and charges line up and that the services offered are comparable to what other renters offer. Take your time and get the best deal.
