Finding the right commercial property for your business can be stressful. We’ve provided four tips to help you locate property in Covington, Kentucky.

Consider RENTING space before buying a property to make sure you limit your financial obligations until the business is up and running; Also hire a broker to help you in negotiating your lease.

Contact the City once you secure a site to make sure the building can legally operate there. Sometimes businesses commit financially to a building that is not zoned for commercial use.

Take advantage of a free pre-development meeting with city staff who can talk about zoning, historic approval processes, building permit information, occupational licenses and eligible incentives.
