As a commercial broker and commercial landlord, you are well on your way. i would want to see a business income and expense statement along with balance sheet even if limited (you say two months). i would also want to see a personal income-expense statement along with a balance sheet. Any verification, such as bank statements would be helpful. In addition, do not be surprised if the Landlord asks you to personally guarantee the lease, ask for a larger than normal deposit (to protect himself against the possibility of default on the lease) due to the limited business history or asks for security such as a lien on the business equipment. Banking relationships are important and a recommendation from you banker could also help. Will you still be employed or your husband employed until your business venture takes off? Since you have no debt, you are in a pretty good position.
