For more established businesses looking for private occupation of a workspace over a medium to longer-term, leased offices may be the best option. Not only do these spaces provide greater control over costings, but their exclusive nature allows businesses to truly own their internal culture and accelerate company success.
There are two different types of leasehold agreements; short-form and long-term leases. For businesses strategising for the long-term, it’s typical to commit to a space for a five to ten-year term and acquire legal advice when drawing up the contract. On the other hand, short-form leases act as a flexible alternative and terms can start anywhere from 18 months to three years.
Although more complex than a license, businesses can take full advantage of the benefits lease contracts can bring. Cost-effectiveness. Greater legal protection. Personal branding.

Typically, leased spaces are delivered in CAT A condition. This means tenants are in total control over the fit out; from furnishing the premises to installing facilities like WiFi and security. But at HubbleHQ, we’ve also seen a growing trend in leased offices that come fully-fitted.
Just like a serviced office, these CAT A+ office spaces are equipped with WiFi, utilities and furniture – designed to take the hassle out of your big office move. This way, you’ll pay a slight premium on the rent but have no fit-out project, can move in almost immediately and have no dilapidations liability at the end of the term.
Sound good? Take a look at some of HubbleHQ’s favourite leased offices below!
