    3. Health & Safety – When your move begins you will have numerous personnel within your offices moving crates, desks etc down corridors, within lifts and vehicles moving around. Health and Safety has to be a priority for the safety of your employees.
    4. Unable to move – Sounds unbelievable, however it does happen because of leases that have not been checked thoroughly, it is advisable to have a property lawyer check your office lease to clarify the required notice period.


  1. Confused employees – Remember your employees are moving too, like moving home it can be a stressful experience and you will need to keep them informed at every stage.
