Rent Query - 20-03-12, 09:50 AM

Hi Geeks,

I am a mobile therapist and have been offered the use of a room in a salon three days a week (I work full time already).

The owner and I are trying to negiotiate rent and I have had a look at the market and the average rent is 75 per week for a room in my location.

I will be working from 6pm til whenever (depending on clients) for two nights during the week and then all day saturday.

I was just looking for advice if I should pay rent hourly of work out a flat rate to pay which would be 15 for the whole day?!

Can anyone help?

Kirsty

Hi when I first went self employed after leaving health farms I started off renting a room in the back of a Sunbed shop, and I used to pay them 20% of what I earned, so I suppose it's how busy you already are, if you earn 350pound a week that's 70pound to the shop, if you earn less then you may be out of pocket? If you have a really bad week and say you only earn 100 pound you will only have to pay salon 20 as appose to 75 but I had no client base and set up brand new business in new area. So in the early days I could sit there all day and maybe earn 20pound just giving out free waxing to gain more clients, which most of still use me now but then if your already earning lots of money you may just want to pay flat rate x
