Understanding and Negotiating the Commercial Lease

Commercial leases are a critical foundation for most businesses, but they can be intimidatingly lengthy, filled with difficult-to-decipher terms, and often just plain dull. Learn how to understand and negotiate commercial leases.

Thursday, November 2 , 2-4pm
Front Room, 2nd Floor of the Bayview Cash Store, 5603 Langley Road

Join commercial banking officer Jason Joiner for this approachable workshop for understanding commercial lease agreements, negotiation tactics for the local market, and key regulations and clauses that can make or break your business.
