We have located a suitable building and negotiated a fair price on the lease, but of course there are startup costs involved, and we simply do not have the funds for everything involved. Although he was kind enough to give us the first two months rent for free, the landlord wants a $2000.00 deposit plus the first months rent of $943.65 plus the first month’s monthly common area maintenance charge of $272.61 for a total of $3,216.26 and a million dollar liability policy. That's before we move in.
Of course, once we have the bulding secured then we have to furnish it. Just the basics at first, seating and a sound system come to mind, but I'm sure there are more, deposits for utilities, etc.
