I'm currently in the process of acquiring a distribution company and am ready to submit a Letter of Intent (LOI). However, I've encountered a hurdle with the lease terms. The landlord is only willing to offer 2-3 year leases, while SBA loans require a 10-year lease to match the loan term.

I'm looking for advice or recommendations on alternative investors or loan options that don’t require such long lease agreements. Has anyone successfully navigated a similar situation using non-SBA funding? Any insights on alternative funding sources or strategies would be greatly appreciated.

Not that the short term lease is to be over-looked, but something I will workout in the contract

Thank you in advance for your help!
