The renegotiation of a lease agreement can be undertaken by any tenant. The achievable scale of savings depend on volume of occupied space, market position of the tenant (if renegotiations are conducted individually) or agency representing the tenant (when the renegotiation process is conducted by external experts). 

One reason is simply to reduce rental costs. Depending on the project, we can achieve cost savings of up to 10 - 30% of initial paid rent. In the case of long term leases and leases of large spaces, the savings can reach up to several million Euros. Additional financial and organisational benefits result from avoiding the costs associated with having to move to a new location, which could result in the potential loss of qualified employees and the need to recruit a new team. 

Our experience shows that few occupiers choose to initiate the lease renegotiation process. Interviews with clients have indicated that one reason is that they don’t appreciate how big the potential savings can be. Another issue is that occupiers often don’t act early enough before the expiry of the lease term. With an almost 53% share in the industrial and logistics market, Colliers has the comprehensive knowledge, making us well placed to help with your renegotiations. 

The Colliers team is one of the largest on the Czech market and can provide full support across all regions. We have specialists who have a deep understanding and experience in industrial and logistics development at a local level in every region.
