Choosing to rent office space in Victoria could be a wise decision. Victoria is a commercial area within the City of Westminster and houses one of the busiest transportation networks in the capital consisting of Victoria railway, London underground and a huge coach station.
Victoria is home to some of the most famous landmarks in London with Westminster cathedral just a stone’s throw from the underground station. Further along are Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament. Victoria also boasts many chic hotels and international restaurants where your clients will not fail to be impressed with the variety and quality of entertainment on offer. The famous Apollo theatre is in the heart of Victoria and produces major musicals and hosts world class comedy shows.
Why choose serviced offices?
Renting traditional office space in Victoria is costly as the tenant has to fit out the offices and put in all the usual office equipment in addition to paying the usual expenses on top. The convenience of serviced offices in Victoria is that the offices are already fitted out so saving you time and money. One monthly payment includes most of your outgoings such as:
• Business rates
• Buildings insurance
• Daily cleaning
• Staffed reception
• Service charges
• On site security
• Use of kitchen
• Utilities, including telephony and broadband
• Facilities Management
Many serviced offices are situated just off Victoria Street in a variety of buildings ranging from modern purpose built ones to conversions. Stag Place is particularly popular for serviced offices and is well situated for Victoria station and its transportation links.
Built in flexibility of serviced offices
Traditional offices by their very nature require time and money to fit them out and are meant to be a long-term commitment. Although this gives a business some security, it does not provide flexibility. In tough economic times most businesses prefer to be in a fluid state where they are not locked in and can adapt and adjust easily to new market trends. Traditional offices are regulated by complicated leases which have burdensome obligations on the tenant. If a tenant wishes to make an early exit from a 15 year lease, he will normally have to pay a premium to break the term. This is additional expenditure which could easily be spent on another part of the business.
Adaptability of serviced offices
Serviced offices are governed by straightforward licences since the landlord is responsible for the maintenance of the entire premises. Renting serviced offices in Victoria will give you the flexibility to either take on additional space or reduce it depending on your business needs. Sometimes, businesses have to relocate to Victoria to be near their clients for a one-off project lasting just a few weeks, and serviced offices are an ideal solution. They can be rented on a weekly or monthly basis, and as they are a turn-key operation they are available at short notice.
