I have been looking for an office for my new part-time business (mainly on the weekend) for a while with no success. Recently my tenants, who damaged and stole from my investment property, moved out of the IP. I wonder whether it's a good idea for my company to lease the property. Of course I will get a formal lease form filled in. As I mentioned above, it's a part-time business, I don't want to pay for the time I don't use if I lease an office from other people. Also I feel reluctant to share office with other people because I have some expensive equipment and I don't want other people to touch it. Any thoughts / suggestions would be appreciated.
