What is Your Principal Place of Business?
This question is not as simple as it sounds. For a sole proprietor or a one location company, the answer is straightforward – your principal place of business is your home, shop, office or wherever you primarily do business.

What Is Right of First Offer?
Right of first offer is an agreement that when an owner is ready to sell or lease an asset, the holder of the right of first offer gets the first chance to buy or lease the property within a given time frame.

Right of First Offer: In Depth
Most commonly, right of first offer is used in contracts within the real estate market and in the selling and buying of businesses. Typically, the stipulation is included in a tenant-landlord contract and in businesses with business partners and investors.
The most practical reason to have right of first offer is for a commercial tenant. If the owner decides to sell, it would give the tenant a chance to make an offer. If accepted, this prevents the need for the tenant to move his or her business to a new location.
