State facilities and land

Four phases of leasing space

Phase 1 - Planning

Phase 2 - Searching for space

Phase 3 - Negotiating

Phase 4 - Preparing lease agreements

Leasing agents find space in both DAS-owned facilities and privately owned facilities. 

DAS-owned buildings have two rent models: uniform rent and self-support rent. 


We help state agencies with

  • Needs assessment and planning assistance (timing, square footage, functionality, cost forecast, strategy and best options)
  • Market research and site search to find leased space that aligns strategic business, financial and operational objectives
  • Interpreting terms and conditions of your lease
  • Political notifications
  • Drafting and soliciting Requests for Information (RFI)
  • Facilitating personal tours of prospective properties
  • Providing comparison of landlord proposals and guidance for decision making
  • Negotiating lease terms and drafting lease agreement
  • Lease administration such as lease audit or operating expense reconciliation and lease enforcement as requested by customer
  • Facilitating scheduling of Capital Projects Advisory Board reviews as needed
  • Providing access to third party brokers and working with the client agency to determine best options for external brokerage

    Water reduction in state facilities


    On July 27, 2016, Governor Brown issued Executive Order 15-09 directing state agencies to reduce water consumption by 15 percent or more across all state-owned facilities on or before December 31, 2020.

    As the state explores avenues to conserve water in its own assets, we kindly ask tenants in state-owned buildings to look for warys to reduce non-essential water consumption wherever practicable.
