I started a new pratice about a year ago, although only recently (last 3 months) started to put more effort into making it a full time job, i.e. getting out there with advertising and marketing.
I have 10 clients, I know not great, growing seems to be a slow process.
A local office has become vacant, its by a busy but slow moving road, no parking sadly although could get away with parking and quickly dropping of papers etc if needed.
The rent with estimated bills would be around my entire fee income, although the office is cheap my fees at the moment are small. I am thinking of giving it a go and moving in for a year, hopefully with an office and "passing" trade, it should help with the marketing and hopfully "pay for itself" so to speak. Ideally leading to a busy pratice. I am in limbo at the moment as my fees arent giving me the income I would need anyway.
I know its common, but the repair clause in the lease worries me slightly... What happens if the roof needs redoing?
Any input would be appricated.
Although I'm new I have searched and there is some great advice which I have taken in.
