Stop Saying This To Prospective Landlords!

During that span of time, several other long term tenants might have leased the space and could not wait 3 months to start their lease term. Sure, you will find a landlord who will lease to you for a short term and jack the price up (and we mean WAY up!), but if your business is in a growth phase, you probably cannot afford to be paying an above-market rental rate.
We understand that you may also be concerned about whether you have a viable business. And a month-to-month lease sounds like a great way to test the market. We certainly respect a prospective tenant for being honest about their situation. However, a month-to-month lease still ties up a space, and while it is a quick fix for a vacancy, it is not a good long term solution. Sure, we could give notice that the month-to-month tenant has to vacate after the next month like the example given above, but it is just not worth the headache.
