I think you need to be careful what LL should pay for. soft market doesn't mean LL should pay anything for tenants improvements. I would only pay for some improvements that are related to the structure and have a value to the property once the tenant may leave. A tenant looking for LL to pay for the start up of their business is not a good tenant to begin with. Does not show a very good sign of commitment to the space by tenant. Not professional for landlord to pay for tenants improvements unless related to real improvements to LL property. You will just attract a poor tenant in my opinion. The market is not so bad, unless your location or property is real bad.
