The location of your property should also have all the utilities like electricity, water, internet, and can easily access to main transports.

4. Other Expenses

There are always some unexpected hidden costs that can arise later on. However, these can be avoided from at the beginning by stipulating the clauses and rental contract terms between the owner of the property and the tenant. The responsibilities of who will cover property damages such as fire hazards or any other renovations needed should be clearly defined in the contract.

 

It is also imperative that you inspect the factory in terms of all the facilities and other factors mentioned earlier on to reduce any other surcharges that come through utilities, parking fees, insurance, etc. Furthermore, you should check to see if the unemployment rate is high in the area and if the market has skillful workers to.
