A Melville-based landlord announced Wednesday that it is offering month-to-month leases for businesses displaced by Hurricane Sandy.

Totus Business Center, a subsidiary of T. Weiss Realty Corp., rents office spaces in Melville, where tenants share a receptionist and office equipment. The buildings have power, Internet access and phone lines.

Chief executive Ted Weiss said that the company has room for at least 90 people in two buildings as well as furnished offices in other office buildings that could be set up on 48 hours notice.

“Whatever it takes to put these people back in business,” Weiss said.

Rents start at $695 a month, which Weiss said is the regular rate on a year lease.
