Just A Few Things To Consider When Leasing A Medical Facility Property

Posted on

If you own commercial property and have been approached by someone wanting to lease it as a medical facility, there are a few things you need to understand before creating the lease. It is common for a building owner to help with some of the costs for a business to finish the space they need for the operation of the business, this is true when it comes to medical facilities. You may be asked to take care of any renovations to the building that the lessee will not be able to take with them at the end of the lease. Here are just a few things you may be asked to pay for.

Ventilation System

The ventilation system in a medical facility must be of he highest proficiency. It is imperative that the chance of disease spreading is kept to a minimum. The ducts and vents must be the right size, and properly placed to allow the air to e pulled from the rooms at a faster rate than that which is required in a home or other commercial building. The airflow must be strong enough to keep pulling the air from the building so the germs and bacteria do not have the time to cling to the sides of the ductwork. 


There will need to be various security measures in effect in the facility. You may need to have a number of rooms with limited access due to medications, patient records, or patient and employee protection. While the lessee will be responsible for a lot of the security, you may need to help with some aspects of it that will be staying with the building. 

Flooring Structure

Some of the machines that will be placed in the building can be extremely heavy. You may need to have the flooring reinforced to be able to withstand the additional weight. 

While it may seem like you will end up putting out a lot of money to have a medical business lease your property, there are a few important thing to keep in mind. The first is that medical facilities can afford to pay a higher rent each month than most other businesses. In addition, most medical facilities will stay in the same place for many years. you won't have to worry about them leaving in a year or two. You can probably get a lease with a term of 15 to 20 years from them. Finally, if and when they do decide to leave the building, you will already have the place set up for another medical facility to move in.
